Boomer is being really aggressive and angry the past few days. I am thinking it is because he is confined, hurting, and probably bored and frustrated. But, at the same time I'm not sure how to handle it in the given situation. He pins his ears frequently and makes attempts at biting. He has also kicked out at me twice. Today I took a long riding crop in his pen with me and when he started to turn towards me and duck his rump like he wanted to double barrel me, I whopped him one on the butt. After that he kept his hind end away from me and watched me intently. I am trying to be patient, but there is never an excuse for dangerous behavior.
John was here for a day and we had a blast. We went to the fair and watched the draft horse pull contest and the mounted shooting contest! Both were actually really awesome! After the fair we went up to Caney, KS to the motor speedway. I had won tickets to the drag race and it was AWESOME!!! John loved it and I got a thrill out of it! It made my heart pound being so close to those cars! We saw about 6 races and there were parts flying, wrecks, and all kinds of crazy stuff. We even saw a 14 year old boy win a race against adults. Apparantly it was nothing new to the regulars.First thing in the AM, the vet was on his way.
The vet sutured up the inner fatty tissue with 5 or 6 sutures. The are absorbable so we will never have to see them again! Here he is working on the flesh also.
All stitched up! He is on 30 grams of Tucoprim a day and will have 10 days of stall rest. We can resume training after 14 days.
The culprit. There is hair around the nut, blood all over it, and the yellow stuff is fat. It seems that he was rubbing on the corner post and the wire at the bottom of the fence panel popped off and the panel slammed to the side and his shoulder went right onto the bolt.
Here is his temporary stall. Brandi, the new boarder had these fence panels handy! The are secured with chains to the shed. The blue tub is his water. The vet told me not to even hand walk him unless he is getting stocked up or antsy. I am supposed to to a cold water rinse daily, which Boomer does not like.
Day 2 or 3
