Meet "Roo". He loves to scratch on whatever will do the job! I just happened to have my camera and catch him rubbing on the pen! It is normally a tree on the way to his pen. He has allergies and sometimes severe allergies! So when we took Angel to the vet the other day I loaded him and took him. Last year we had a hard time keeping him controlled. Well this year we are already starting and hoping to catch it before he gets real bad. He gave him a Vetalog injection and I will be giving one a week for 3 weeks, then decrease down to 1 every 2 weeks and when those are gone, see how he is doing. Hopefully we can go to once a month. I also bathe once a week with a anti itch shampoo, fly spray at least once daily, he wears a fly mask and I use MTG on his mane and tail. I hope this allergy season we can keep him comfortable! Hubby is hoping for a long mane as well!

LOL, I have extra heavy chains on my gaits because Kola will put her heavy butt up against the gaits to scratch!

Good thing you have heavy duty pipe corrals. He looks stout enough to do some damage-LOL

We have the same thing at our house. Glad you got the tough stuff...hopefully the shots work. Allergies stink!
