Unfortunately Afrikhan Shah had returned only Tuesday before the Open House from being almost a month being collected at a frozen semen center in Belgium.
He does not do well away from Johanna's wonderful farm (where he is calm and relaxed and happy) and what you see is the result of that month away from Darby Farm--and Johanna and her wonderful staff.
The bite marks usually heal, and now that he is back with Johanna, he should stop the biting. It is a shame that he had to go away just before the open house, but he is becoming quite a popular sire, and the frozen semen supply from last year was almost depleted.
Both Curt and I were very upset when we saw the photos today also...as we thought Teddy had pretty much stopped this behavior.
