An UNwelcomed visitory!

OK. Who can guess what these are? If you said porcupine quills you're right. NOW, who can guess which critter got into this porcupines personal space and ended up with a nose full of quills? No, not the dog. No, not Emeline, although I probably would be less surprised if it was her! If you guessed Zatty my curious gelding you would be right. These are some of the quills that I discovered in his nose! Now for those of you who know horses, they can become headshy pretty easily. I can't wait for the next time I go to put a bridle on him, he's sure to give me a hard time. I was able to pull most of them out by myself but soon had to call Brad out to do some distracting for the final few. Poor (stupid) boy.

I have to say, I have never heard of a horse getting quilled!!! (although I am still new at this!) BUT I HAVE heard of the curious horse! Kit's put his nose through glass before.. we have yet to experience the porcupine!! I wonder how a horse can be curious AND head shy at the same time!!!
Good luck with the last few!! I hope he'll trust you later to put the bridle on..poor guy!
take care!
