On Saturday I went with 4 other people on a roadtrip to Fayettville. It was a kick ass time too. Imagine a bunch of people doing stupid jackass type of stuff, videotaping it and luckily NOT getting in trouble.
On Sunday I finally got the phone to work somewhat and was able to check my messages and had 5 messages telling me that my horse Romeo had gotten hurt earlier that day.
This person that also rides him decided that she was going to show him that plastic bags aren't dangerous. If you are going to desensitize a horse to something you have to do it in a small area such as a stall and then hold the object and gradually move it closer to him. She on the other hand tied the black plastic bag to the saddle horn and once he got moving it filled with air and started making noice which made him panic since in his mind it must have been a predator trying to get him. He ended up cutting himself over the eye and had to get stitches and a draining tube inserted. His eye is all swollen and filled with puss. I feel so bad for him. Hopefully it will heal fast!!! It looks pretty bad though but I hope he will be okay in the end.
