Vet came out yesterday to give shots to all of the horses and do a coggins on the ones that will be traveling this year. This was Patriot's first time to receive a shot and have blood drawn for a coggins since we picked him up last year. The vet started before Kirstin and I made it home. He started out with Patriot. He walked into Pate's pen, no halter on Pate, walked up to him and gave him his shots and then drew the blood for the coggins. Yes, you read right-no halter on Patriot and he just stood there like it was nothing. Amazing, that he is. Wish I could say the same for Kryptonite, he hates needles. They have to put him in the chute and it is a major ordeal to give him shots of any type. TAZ, Dynomite and Trigger did great as well. Sakari didn't like the shots either. Luckily our vet has a wonderful technician who is extremely patient and knowledgable about horses.
