cast horse

I put all my boys into stalls to eat only, since I have crazy herd mare segregated in another pasture and she loses her mind if they are "gone" for too long. Well, after they eat, I groom them. I start with Jack because he's done first. Then, I move to Sunny. When I walked into Sunny's stall, he was CAST!!! First, what the heck was he doing rolling while he was eating?! Second, I didn't have my phone like I usually do and how the heck was I going to drag the 600 pounds or so of yearling away from the wall?! He was good and cast, too! Luckily, he's pretty laid back and trusts me and between the two of us, I got him moved. I have several bruises and ended up on my behind when he finally stood up and shook. The look on his face! "Now, do I have to help YOU up?"

Silly boy.

Our colt (who is now 10) used to cast himself up agains big roll bales. Would have to go out and flip him over - thank goodness he was smaller then!
They can be so silly for sure

Next time he gets cast do this. Take a soft cotton lead rope, the longer the better. Loop it around the ankle on the hind leg that is on the bottom. Then take another rope and loop it around the front ankle on the bottom. Pull straight back as hard as you can and don't let go until they are rolled over. Then get the *ell out of the way so they don't stand up on top of you. This is what we would have to do every single morning with at least one or two colts at the Arab barn I worked with. Doing it this way as long as we got out of the way quick enough neither party usually got hurt.
Make that 6 years!

If at the end of the day, all you have left is your integrity and honor. Then hold your head up, because that's more than most have.
