Eric was out to the ranch on Sunday, and despite all the wind, he did manage to work with Iceman a bit. They had a small audience at first, so he was a little nervous about that and Eric could not get that close. Once everyone left, Eric managed to get back in the stall and work some more. This time Iceman was much more relaxed, Eric was able to rub all over his body and down his left/front leg and pick his hoof up for about 5 seconds. After a good 30 minutes of making contact and talking to him, he finally relaxed and bent his back leg and started to go to sleep.
Looks like the BLM will be out at Shiloh on Wednesday's vet day to freeze brand Iceman while he is down for his castration. We don't know how we will ever be able to read the white brand though against his white coat!
Eric in the Danger Zone, but Iceman doesn't even care...
