After a very long, long day of fixing fences because potbelly attacked horse and horse pulled down fence then having to chase potbelly around the yard, put him in his pen, only to find out he had a hole in it..... So had to chase him again..... then chase everyone back to the other pasture................. finally get everything fixed, go take a nap - I wish. At feeding time I go out to feed up and my horse Dante comes up to me with a big 4 inch gash in his chest deep enough to put a few fingers through and a hunk of flesh attached with skin. Great! Vet is 2 hrs away so hubby brings home supplies and I get to play vet and suture him up. Thank goodness he is such a gentleman. We back him up into the chicken barn, he is standing on railroad ties, but it is the best light I have out there. Poor guy gets no numbing because I have none, just ice to help it some. i have hubby feed him horse cookies while I stitch....... i swear i could take dantes head off if I just kept feeding him cookies. He didn't even fidget, just a few skin flickers- that's it. I never knew horse skin and flesh was so thick. I had a hard time, but he was a trooper. Poor guy, I still don't know what he got wrapped up in. A shot of Pen G for good luck and he's sleeping in the barn tonight. What a day !!!
