Well Roscoe got lucky today. He got to have his wolf teeth pulled...Finally. I braided his forelock and tucked it up out of the way. Then I knotted his tail up so he did not step on it. When the vet came he explained that he would sedate him then put on a rig that would help hold his head up. Can you guess what my job was? Yep I held the rope attached to his head. That got some Cob grunts.

Roscoe got some really good drugs though, right in the blood. He was out in no time. I wondered if he would stay up. He did. The vet located the nubs, then used what looked like a punch tool on them. Then he was able to pull them out. They were a lot smaller than I expected.

Roscoe was happily in La La land and did not react at all since he was numbed too. The vet rinsed him before filing down some edges near the sites. At the grinding noise the grey boys were like "What the Hell? We just got that done." I had to tell them they were not participating this time.
Once he was filed and rinsed, he was released. Roscoe was snoring and wobbling. He only almost fell once while I watched, but boy was he out. I had to laugh when I really looked at him. Most boys drop when sedated. Well Roscoe had everything tucked up so high he looked like a gelding. I guess he heard my comment to the vet that Roscoe was lucky he was only losing teeth, when boys tend to lose their balls at the same time. He only let them hang again once he was waking up. Ah, Boys :)
The best part was that it ended up being $132 which was over $50 cheaper than the vet originally said. A couple hours later Roscoe was awake enough to go sniff poop and drop some stud splats. Back to normal and our cue it was time to go to work.
