Here are two "turtles". :lol:
I don't even know what to say....
The second video is a text book case of how not to get a horse up. Being in range of the head and neck or those feet when they start flying can be very painful. :eek:
I've heard of horses getting cast in their STALLS, but...I guess if it's deep enough their back gets down, it gives when they try to brace against the "ground" to roll, and...."AGH! I'M STUCK!"
If it had just been the one...but no, two. Unbelievable :lol:
Reminds me of the other day, went out to feed in the morning and one of the horses was stuck on the pile of hay that was what was left of a round bale. She had tried to roll and ended up stuck (not on her back) with just enough hay for it to be impossible for her to actually get up, she had too many blankets on to be able to go all the way over. Ended up just pulling all the hay out and she got up like nothing had happened.
The second one looked like he was going to go find a new spot to roll again...
Oh great, now everyone's going to think it's cruel to turn out horses in the snow!! lol
I agree with charis, I thought the second one was going to drop right away and do it again!
Thank god I don't live a place that gets that much snow! I'd worry all the time.
I had no idea!
On that second video -- I truly hate hearing people giggle at someone else's distress. :(
We once had a call from someone who's donkey was so obese that she would get stuck on her back when she rolled. We advised her to quit overfeeding the poor donkey! :rolleyes:
Oh I don't know, I think I'd be laughing the entire time I was digging my stupid horse out of the snow. It's not like he was injured. I mean, how on earth would he survive in the wild?
I dunno how anyone couldn't resist giving them a belly rub or two. :D
