Roadyy, I have been out walking in the pasture but yeah....my legs are still numb and somewhat stiff. I am walking in waist/neck deep water at the Wellness Center and am proud to say I did 15 pushups today. Surprised myself. I haven't done pushups in years. Mostly because I am a wuss.
Anyway...update on my pissy horse. I set up panels today with KD in the corner of their pasture. I put feed in and Sarge went in. Biscuit hung back and I went to the barn and got grass hay and alfalfa. I put it in the enclosure and Biscuit walked in and we closed the gate. Still can't catch him though. I took Sarge out and got water. Later tried to put closed Reins over his head while he was eating a little bit...FAIL.
I called the vet to see if there was a tranquilizer that could go in feed. FAIL...not available.
Ok...called my cowboy cousin, Bruce. Can you rope The Biscuit I asked him. He said only as a last resort. He said he'd come out tomorrow and get Biscuit for me. He suggested all the things I have already done. But Biscuit was in a pasture doing these things not in a little pen.
Always good to have a cousin that ropes in competitions! Hahaha he said "I can't do alot of things but I can build great pools and work with horses!"
Biscuit is just being a toot but this could also be the reason his trainer had him tied to a pole with a bloody head before I got him. Biscuit wasn't fooled with as a foal as far as I know, was cryptorchid and not gelded til he was 5 or 6 years old. He wasn't broke til then either. I discussed all of this with my riding buddy Kellie and said if I can't get him back to his sweet self pretty quick I will send him to a trainer.
Several people suggested to hubby that we hobble Biscuit. Lots of options to try before I would give up.
