Stallion Trouble and Horse Surgery
Well it's been once again, an insane week! I've been trying to get Sprout (Command Central), Skipper, Mocah (Hot Skippin Mama) Lana (Lanas Lil Diamond) Hugo (One Intimidating Dude) and Gem (Skippin for Diamonds) ready for the fair. I got Skipper's and Sprout's feet trimmed today. Sprout didn't like that at all and Skipper thought he had better things to do in life. So he was kind of a brat for my farrier. But he's just a big baby, so if I stood next to him and pet him, he would be just a bid teddy bear. and lean on my farrier :) 1600 pounds of horse. he didn't appreciate that much. The farrier I mean. Sprout, even though he loves attention, hates being brushed. WHen i would pull even a little on his mane, he would pin his ears at me and run off. It was funny. But his mane is so knotty...he has dread locks :D haha...Well anyway Pistol went in for surgery today for his hocks. The doctor was surprised - as well as I was - at how well it went. He pulled through with flying colors and if I would've given him 6 more months, both hocks would've been fused. But I wanted to get back on him. But he had a hard time getting the needle into the right place, and had to poke him many times, so his hocks are swollen to high heaven and he will need to rest for at least a week. So he is on stall rest and doesn't like that too much, but I don't care. He should be happy he feels better. I'm sure glad he is, but he's really pushy now. Oh well...He'll figure out that he can't do that pretty soon :) Now about the stallion trouble. I put Poco out in the pasture on Saturday night. I put the stallions in the pasture that's lowest so they can't get through the fence and to the mares...well that didn't stop him. My yearlings and two year olds are in heat right now...well he got into the pasture and bred...all of them. Well I have no idea how long he was in there, but when I got a halter on him, my Colonels Smoking Gun (Gunner) and Hollywood Dun it filly. Started to kick the crap out of him...I didn't think I was going to get her to stop. Well He deserved it. I didn't feel bad. So he lost his recess privileges and will no longer be allowed in pasture. His back leg, face, and belly are scraped up and bloody, but he really deserved it, so once again, I don't feel bad :) Well hope you're doin well! Left a vote! Hope to hear from you soon!
