This gorgeous black stud was part of the bucking stock string that was at the Yakima Feedlot in December. Will enter training the beginning of May 2006.

Rory is a GELDING! :) He was such a good boy today as the vet sedated him, proceeded to lay him down and then geld him. He came out of his general anesthetic very good and is now in his stall recovering :)

Unfortunately, the vet wasn't able to trim the excess scar tissue off his leg wound because it is still "viable" and is going to require more time for Rory to be sedated than he could be kept "under" today. It is going to require a more intense removal, with possible stitching and then being pressure wrapped for 3-4 weeks. It was unfortunate that it wasn't a simple procedure to remove it. The vet was sure it would bleed terribly and turn into a nightmare if just 'sliced off' :(

Rory is doing pretty good tonight, post surgery. He's actually turned into a cuddle bug now that he's not feeling so good. Each time I walked into the barn, he was right there, eyes soft, ears pricked forward, asking for attention. Whenever I rubbed his neck, he showed his pleasure by melting and leaning into me :) He needs to be in the stall until tomorrow morning, then we can start our exercise routine for his aftercare. I'm looking forward to this new bonding time between us!
