    So we had a mess today. My biggest Pierre David bull found a roll of wire some damn place and wrapped himself up in it. Took all day to get to where we could safely knock him out but we eventually did. It was quite the mess but he seems ok now. We’ll know how well he recovered in the morning. We’re praying he stays upright on all fours. Last we saw him he had sobered up quite a bit and rejoined the herd. It took about an hour before he was back up on his feet and sure footed. I got pretty concerned about his body temp while he was out but we kept him cool as we could and the reversal started working in about 8 minutes.
    It is extremely rare that I will step in But this particular animal is extremely rare, the herd sire (he’s still young but is breeding), and this was a man made issue not a situation where nature is taking its course.
    He’s down and the wire cutting begins A76B2848-6CC0-4E63-BF0B-26D97FB9AD41.jpeg F8A5E42E-D333-4B8E-A383-B9C518E01507.png A76B2848-6CC0-4E63-BF0B-26D97FB9AD41.jpeg We got it all cut off and gave him the reversal E1DAEF6F-CB0B-45F4-8C9D-171096883E41.jpeg 5383AD1C-B82B-44D4-A94A-B0E52E187415.jpeg B6E2872D-94D4-4D21-A3A5-827BB0DCC596.jpeg A quick pic before he wakes up 85B91ABC-01B2-48EC-B5DA-A18A4151CEA7.jpeg 8 minutes later he’s awake but really confused 41CF0D1B-A8E3-4B29-AA7B-C10885938DD0.jpeg 15 minutes later he’s on his feet a little drunk still but recovering well. 6311FFF0-7FD4-45FF-841F-D57DFD2EC196.jpeg

    That's great. Lucky it wasn't barb wire. Could have been a real disaster to such a fine bull. May he have a long and happy life.

    That deer is just now turning 4 so he’s got a long way to grow up still. He won’t really start filling out for 2 more years. When he reaches maturity he should look similar to these deer. A9FCE5EF-E25C-4EFD-8E1A-BBF6C7A51374.jpeg BD770D86-4B0F-45ED-926F-71D4FCAE1FDC.jpeg

    I’m sure it is and I guarantee his butt is sore as hell from being shot with that dart.
