A couple days before Red got his teeth floated and we got a bean out. We're expecting him to gain a little more weight now because he was losing a lot of grain when he ate (Which is why he needed his teeth floated) and he's already acting like he feels a lot better from getting the bean out.
Poor guy was so sedated. :( It was really neat to be able to watch it be done, though. The vet was sweet enough to come to the "farm" and do it instead of us having to trailer him and take him, too.
|Red kept holding his head really low, and his ears peeking over the stall door was adorable. He is WAY taller than that door! LOL!|
But the visit was bittersweet. Shamus, a pony that Red had made good friends with, was put down due to age. He was 25 years old, maybe even older, and it was getting hard for him. He was doomed to a life in a stall, and that isn't fair. Rest in peace, Shamus.
