Well, Saturday morning started off fine. Loaded up the horses, drove to the trails, got the boys out to groom and saddle up and then BOOM! It happened. Poor Magic backed himself up into a rock and sliced his poor little leg. It was a moment of "freaking out" but just for a moment. We watched as the blood poured out of his leg...eek! We acted quickly and bandaged it up as fast as possible to stop the bleeding. He was very jumpy at that point so I kept him calm as Deb took care of his leg. Poor guy. So....we loaded them both back up and back home we went. Well, that was after sitting out there for awhile making sure Magic was okay. *sigh* The cut was actually small with a long scrape but we got it to stop bleeding and a bit later when we got home he seemed fine and wasn't favoring it.
So.....we picked blackberries for the rest of the afternoon. :)
The blackberry bushes lined Deb's long driveway so we had a lot of bushes to cover. And the boys even helped us out. :)
Ari did a great job in digging them out! Ari, really! You should clean up after yourself.
Magic was still a bit mad at us from working on his leg. If looks could kill!
