Starkville has a great DVM named Allen Ethridge! Specializes in horse dentistry... Without him my bow Dusty would have been a horse toco by now. Wish he was closer to my area!

It was nice here today. I picked up Vegas from the stables and took him to the farm where Gilbert was being pastured. The horses loved it for awhile. The ferrier came out and shod both horses. This was Vegas 1st time getting shoes and he took it like a champ. The ferrier was a little nervous at 1st since he's an appy, but after the 1st feet, he was totally relaxed. Gilbert's hooves were a mess and this is the 3rd time he has done his feet. The ferrier said that all those years of improper shoeing when he was a hunter jumper left him with severly damaged hooves but they are getting better. He wanted to know what had changed since the last time he saw him. I told him his diet. He had been on a 12% mixture that was mostly sweet feed before I bought him. He's now on Nutrena safe choice and horsehosers secret.

After they were shod I put them in the round pen together while we gathered up all our things so we could take them home. Out of nowhere, this crazy azz horse went up to the round pen and started charging the side of the fence trying to get to them. When the horse went down on the fence and the panel leaned forward, Gilbert jumped the fence and took off for his pasture that he was being kept in. The other horse was still at the round pen trying to get to Vegas. DH went to get the horse away from the round pen while I started down the hill to Gilbert. Gilbert neighed at the fence and this nutty azz horse took off in his direction. Gilbert ran across the paster and somehow this crazed horse caught up with him, kicked out her back feet, catching Gilbert above the right back knee with a force that took him completely off his feet leaving a big gash above the inside of his back knee. I had a whip in my hand, ran the horse away got Gilbert. I cold hosed his leg to stop the bleeding and sprayed some vetricyn on it. These are my 1st horses and to me it looked pretty bad so I called the vet and was told to keep using the vetricyn 2-3 times a day and to call him if he gets any swelling.

I loaded my horses up and they both came to my house for the 1st time since I purchased them. After we unloaded them, we walked them around the yard for a few minutes the put them in their pasture. They ran around kind of nervous for a few minutes stopping to check out every sound that they heard. Once they realize that there was no crazy horse there they relaxed. We sat out in the back yard watching them for over an hour and now they act like nothing has happened.

Gilbert is the 2nd horse that this horse has injured in less than a week. The other horse wound looked worse than Gilbert's.

I wonder if the owner is still wondering why the previous owner gave them such a beautiful mare.

So far I like Nutrena. Vegas has more energy since he has been on Nutrena. Right now they're giving buy 1 get 1 free coupons for smart choice. Be sure to check all 3 coupons and it will let you print 3 of them. I used all of mine in 1 day since I keep their food in 50g plastic containers with an air-tight lid.

You can print the coupons here. SafeChoice Horse Feed by Nutrena

Gilbert is walking around good this morning. His leg don't seem to be bothering him too much. So far no swelling. Vegas stays right by his side. He seems to be playing the role of the mother hen right now. He let's him hang out and rest for awhile then goes nudge him and they walk around together, sometimes they run. He acts likes he's ground schooling Gilbert. LOL
