Awe THANK YOU!!
He always loves attention haha, so any visiting does wonders for his mood. :) Oh jeez, I think he's found a way to open it himself...nobody opened it for him and other times I find it wide open. Silly silly horse haha.
happy to report that he got turned out in his little paddock outside today...and was amazing!! He *calmly* walked around to sniff the new place out, did a little trot and snort and happily ate his breakfast.
His paddock is right also beside all of his old field buddies so he is beyond happy to see them! And they were alllll over him haha. Robbie and his boyfriend (a bay TB named Euro that was in the field with him) made out for a good 15 mins and then he said hello to his other friends. It was so cute, Euro was prancing around all like "DUDEEEE. I THOUGHT YOU DIED."
Honestly, after all the crap he has done lately I could not have been happier how wonderful he was. I was legit having a heart attack just waiting for him to lose his mind haha. But he was an angel and I think he will heal 10x faster and be in a much better mood now that he can go outside, walk around and be a horse again
The only sucky thing is that if it snows a lot, gets icy or sloppy/slippery, he doesn't get to go outside. We just can't risk him slipping or doing something stupid...like I know he would haha.
So today I let him have his fun outside and then brought him in to change his bandages and give him a good grooming/clipping/making him look presentable haha. Which means I got some more peektures for you all! Yayyy!
Outside after he got settled
After his good groom, he looks like a sunken-in skeleton. :( Poor guy has no muscle and looks like a rescue case haha. It doesn't help he lost like 300 pounds.
And his heel sores still healing from the cast.
...just have to brag about my amazing wrap job. Legit haven't done this more perfectly than today haha. ;)
