#EventerProblems Vol. 118: Horses Gonna Horse

Does anyone else out there get a weird and strangely satisfying kick out of draining abscesses? One time I popped out out the back of my horse’s heel and the gunk shot out like a water fountain for a full 10 seconds while I sat there clapping my hands and squealing with delight.

If you can relate, you might enjoy this first #EventerProblems photo. If not, you might want to just scroll right on past that one.

I probably could have put together an entire post of hoof related #EventerProblems alone — ’tis the season for thrown shoes and abscesses, apparently. But we’ll mix it up, letting the horses lead the way!
