Not colic...

Bob just called, Trooper has lockjaw... tetanus!

That is a first for us, we've always heard of it and we give all of our animals tetanus shots if they have surgery or such. The lambs always get a tetanus shot when they are banded. But Trooper hasn't had one. Guess we will have to include those on foals from now on.

Dr. Edwards says if he keeps eating the prognosis is good. He will have to have 5 shots today and tomorrow.
