You know your horse is a lightweight when...

Boomer's leg is doing great.  I thought i would share a few pictures of his injury.  The vet gave him ACE to work on him and holy cow- that boy got DEEEERUNK!!!

He was leaning and wobbling and his knees would buckle a little.  His head was against the barn door and he had drool dribbling out of his mouth.  When I led him to his paddock it took FOREVER and he acted like we were walking freaking miles- not 50 feet!  He had to stop and pee on the way and then for like 20 minutes after that he just let it all hang out and would occasionally pee his pants (I know he doesn't wear pants).  Oh, it was gloriously funny!  And somehow like being in college all over again...

The vet cut off the flap of skin, exposing a triangle of flesh.  I think the cut was a little over an inch wide.  

 This shows the swelling better:

Be basically stayed in this position for 20 minutes while he woke up.  Didn't even move his ears.

Poor Boomer! But he does kinda look cute, all stoned like that lol. Sure hope he's feeling better soon.
