Thought you all might enjoy this - I will take pics later! Well, my little colt in doing awesome that was born on the 20th. He is no longer yellow in the eyes, no scours anymore, and just a spit and fire boy! The other day I saw that he had learned how to buck! It was so cute - he was running back and forth through the pasture as fast as his legs could carry him and then he would start bucking around. THEN last night, I noticed that he learned how to slide stop, although he didn't really start stopping in time and ran into momma! LOL! So I took feed out last night - put the hay in the blue plastic bin and filled the grain bucket. I then was petting mom a bit and giving her her treats. Usually the colt will lick the treats and kind of suck on them. So I walked over to him he took a couple licks - spun around - KICKED ME WITH BOTH HOOVES and took off running again. I stood there not realizing at first what had happened - :scratch: Then the PAIN came! :tears: :tears: :tears: I stood there for about 10-15 minutes trying not to cry. He got me on the right leg from the front, wrapped all the way around the inside of my thigh 1/2 way between my knee and hip. I think I was pretty lucky as it wasn't straight on on the bone. And I swear he was laughing at me :cry: So I hobbled back to the house, put the wheelbarrow away, and climbed the stairs to the house still debating on wether to tell hubby what happened or not. I walked in and he could see I was fighting tears and asked what happened - so I told him and we went in the bedroom so I could drop my drawers and assess the damage. OH MY it was aweful and bruised already and it had only been 20 minutes max. THEN he LAUGHED his butt off! :ROFL: :ROFL: :ROFL: Now that was SOOO uncalled for! So we went back out to the living room so that I could sit down for a minute and we looked out at the pasture at him and he was tearing around the pasture now kicking his mom's plastic hay feeder tub. What a booger!!!! :veryangry: When I went out (limping badly) this morning the first thought was - he better not come near me and I can't wait till he is old enough for the round pen - because I WILL get him back! LOL! I will have my revenge. I just really can not believe how much strength he has in those legs at not even 2 weeks old!!! I am supposed to get hay this weekend and buck bales - yah like that is going to happen now - I was supposed to start the colt on a halter - yah that is a funny thought - and I was going to try to get on my 4 year old Quarter to see if she truely is rideable - yah uh huh! LOL! We will see!
