Black is the new black. Batman is now in prison. The vet treated his joints today, we discovered the lameness in the left hind leg a week ago, and he will need a couple of weeks with rest after the treatment. We are hoping it will work and that he will be sound again soon!
There are many reasons why I keep Batman on turnout 24/7, one of them is the fact that he hates being locked up. The other reason is that I don’t think a small cage is a perfect place for keeping a huge herd animal. But that’s a whole different story. Anyways, this will be an interesting week … When I led him into the box he was literally trotting in circles, how is it even possible to trot on 3×3 meters? Unbelievable. When I left, he was neighing after me ten times and gave me the “what the fuck, Matilde, are you seriously going to leave me alone here?”-look. I think this is even more stressful to me than to him. I feel so bad for him! I hope he knows it is for his own good and that he will be out playing with his herd soon!
In the evening he had calmed down, and I hope he will stay that way!
To be continued …
Peace, love and lame Friesian hugs,
Batman & Matilde
