Mick E Mouse is diagnosed with a small fracture in his lower back between two vertebrae, after having X-rays taken Thursday morning at Texas A&M. Henry:
They say it is not uncommon to have that in bucking bulls, especially if you have one that bucks really, really hard…It is relief. It is good news. I haven’t eaten. I haven’t slept. I haven’t sat still for three days. I have done nothing, but worry about it. It could have been a whole lot worse. A fracture in the back and six weeks, I can live with that.
Mick E Mouse is spending the next seven days at Texas A&M undergoing treatment, which includes three sessions of acupuncture. Mick E Mouse has the entire summer to recover, and as long as there are no setbacks in his recovery process, he will next buck on Aug. Seventh and Eighth the Built Ford Tough Series second-half opener in Biloxi, Mississippi.
