Horses are the most benign, friendly non agressive creatures, right? Well – never annoy one, or you might just end up like Mel. He must have upset Sherafey yesterday, because he came in from the field with a huge hole in his neck. She must have been very annoyed, because it is some bite –
Not that it looks it, but he was actually very, very lucky because she missed his jugular vein by a whisker. If she’d got it he’d have bled to death in a couple of minutes. Needless to say she is most definitely on the equine naughty step today and Mel is recovering in his stable. Despite all the staples it looks a bit worse that it is, but he should knit back together and with any luck there won’t be too much scarring.
Just goes to show that you should remember that horses need to be respected…..
