Laid Up

Sunny the baby dragon hobbled in from turnout last week with a mangled shoe, a nail puncture wound in his hoof, and bites marks on his neck and rump. Obviously someone picked a fight and lost. So after repeated failed attempts to soak his foot in a more…ahem… traditional manner, a coworker at the barn lent his owner a dry sack which worked MUCH better.

His owner wrapped him up as I held him and then I took him outside on my lunch break to let him do what he does best.

The farrier came to put his shoes back on last Friday afternoon so we’ll see how quickly he’ll bounce back to his normal fire breathing self! Until then, he’ll be receiving plenty of TLC.
