Remember my blood bay baby?What the heck? I know babies change color, but this guy has really changed. I will still register him as bay because his legs are black, but I wonder if he will shed out to that blood-bay color again next spring?
This silly colt sure has a nice disposition. He is very friendly and will come from across the pasture to hang out with a person. I love that. Some of it is from imprinting, but some of it has to be from his daddy. None of Woofer's other foals were this friendly-imprinted or not-LOL. His kicking antics weren't a bad thing. They impressed on Megan that you can't just "love" on the babies. She is careful to treat him like a small horse and impresses on him that he must face up if he wants attention and he must respect a person's space. Even my mom likes to be around him and I have to tell you-for as many horses as my mom has raised, she don't like babies much. She never really figured out how to handle them, so she just didn't.
How do you like this boo-boo?I had the 2 horses I took to Colorado in the round pen for a couple of days and when I went out to load them up to take them back out to mom's, Roan Dog had part of his nostril hanging off. Great!! I don't think this is going to heal back together. I will have to wait until it heals up and the flies go away and then I bet I am going to have to take him to the vet to have this chunk removed. Can't leave it there, he will continually catch it on something and eventually tear it off. That would be horrible. I have absolutely no idea how on earth he did it. There is not a single thing in that round pen that he could have gotten hooked on. The only thing I can think of is that either he or Turk struck at a fly and whacked him in the nose. This is the same nostril he had an old scar on that we never knew how he got. Darn horses...put em in a padded cell and they will still find a way to hurt themselves.
