You are the expert Mikey so I will leave the decision up to you!
Tonight I trimmed John Henry because he should be able to go home soon. He was not thrilled with the idea. He was REALLY not thrilled with the idea. Since he refused to give me his feet he ended up on his side on the ground. And I DID get him trimmed! But in the process he did the following to me:
Blood blister, bruise and abrasion on right palm:
Double-barrel kick with hind legs to the left side of my neck!
Didn't take pictures of everything but yes there is more...
Bruise and abrasion on right ankle
Several bruises on right shin
Bruise and abrasion on right knee
Abrasion on left knee
Feels like whiplash both sides of back of neck
Feels like pulled muscle left shoulder
3 abrasions inside right forearm
Multiple bruises inside right forearm
Bruise and abrasion outside right wrist
And I am sure I will find more tomorrow! All this because I was afraid of squishing the little guy so didn't hold him tight enough...
When Hilary got home I asked her to go let the horses out since I was beat up. She said she thought that was a hickey on my neck. GREEEEEAAAAAT!
So, Mikey, what's your verdict?
PS Note to self - SPEND MORE TIME working with foals on picking up feet!!!
