Biscuit Busted his Butt
I didn't get to go riding yesterday but Barry did. He went to get Sarge and he and Biscuit were running around the pasture like wild horses and Biscuit either tripped, stumbled or slipped and busted his butt. Barry said he tried to get up and was near the fence and slipped down and started up again and had rolled partially under the fence. He got up, pulling the fence with him, broke two posts and was on the outside of the fence. Jamie (pronounced HI-Me) was going down the ranch road feeding and he and Barry tried to catch him...Biscuit was galloping all over the place and got all of the horses charged up and going.
Barry finally caught Biscuit and he said he seemed just fine. I went out to check on him and he looked like he was maybe just a tiny bit favoring his front right side but I found no swelling, puffiness or tenderness. He was very interested in the treats I had. He did have a scrape mark on the left side of neck where goes into his mane but not a cut.
Sigh...horse can make you a little crazy!!
