Scout's got another problem. Something happened to his eye. I suspect Bella kicked him while they were playing in the pasture. She gets all excited and gets to bucking and kicking and I have seen her get him once before in the side. His eye is all swollen and weepy, and the parts that are supposed to be pink or white are red red red. I rinsed it with saline since there was some dirt and grass in evidence, then called the vet. They're probably going to come out tomorrow. There doesn't appear to be any trauma to the eyeball itself but I could have missed it. Hopefully they can come out really early. I don't like eye problems. The poor kid is miserable too. Hope she didn't damage his little head in the process... Now I'm thinking I better go check on them again. Hopefully it'll be no big deal though, maybe just a horsey equivalent of a black eye.
