An update on the horse from the rodeo. I found out yesterday that his leg shattered. He landed on one leg and it snapped like a tree branch. My physical therapist works with the cowboys and was down there and he said he saw and heard the leg snap. He said by the time they got the horse in the stall in the back the vet had a syringe in hand and put the guy down immediately. He was a pretty horse too. My pt said he was worth $50,000 and I was stunned when he said that. He also said a calf got his neck snapped during the calf roping a few nights ago. It is interesting how much I am learning from him. I still love the rodeo but I guess I never really realized how rough it gets on animals and the cowboys.
