I will think of this every time I see a nut shot now. Boys shouldn't be made so vulnerable.

Do you think there is a market for jock straps for stallions??? I see a business opportunity.

OUCH! Glad that his issue has been addressed. Hopefully the swolling goes down quickly. There are so many people out there that believe that animals don't feel pain or feel it like we do because of how stoic they are during problems like this. The truth is, in nature, one cannot show weakness for fear of being taken out. I can't imagine (and hopefully never have to find out) how much pain he was in. Thank God you were there to take care of him.

Well you can get a pattern to knit a willie warmer

Just need to improve on the concept

Daily prayers have been sent your way all along, and Reed is now right beside them! You can count on it - Both of you :)

Ouchie! Poor boy! I'm glad to hear that he is expected to recover! Here's to a full recovery!
At a farm I used to work at they had an old stallion come in who had been bitten by a donkey during a (failed) attempt to breed and could not retract himself. The BO made a full body sling for him! It was a custom job, but allowed him to be ridden and actually reduced the swelling cause he wasn't swinging all over the place.

Glad to hear he is on the road to recovery

Just reading about it made me cringe, looking at the photos were just shocking and terrible. If that happened to me *Note Gender in Signature* I think I would just curl up on the ground and never get up. Good for him for getting back up and -quite literally- sucking it up...
