Awwww, poor Paco. I'm glad he only needed stitches.


I am very glad Paco was okay. Do you remember the two Sheltland sheepdogs that Grandpa used to have? They got kicked several times because they felt they should herd the horses. One might have gotten a cracked rib once but they were never dangerously injured. I am sure it was very scary though.


It's true what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. Now Paco and Owen understand how dangerous those big beasties can be. So maybe a bit of the "blessing in disguise" going on.
Glad all is well now.


Thanks for your comments. I hope it taught him something, although given his recent resurgence of interest in our landlord's horses through the fence, I doubt he'll avoid them.
Mike, I don't remember those particular dogs, but Grandpa always had a slew of dogs around his horses, didn't he?
