I went to a stud farm on business not too long ago and they had a colt there that had run full speed into a 3 strand barbed wire fence a few weeks prior to my visit. (neighbors fence) The poor thing had been stitched up but was cut to ribbons and had a couple areas of proud flesh. He could not walk normally but staggered about. His chest and all four legs had serious cuts, but I'm guessing the tendons were not completely severed or stitched up. The owner said he wasnt sure if he should put him down and hinted I could have him. Its an extremely well bred colt. The question is am I setting myself up for heart break or should I try and save him?
