The grey roan of Herold was probably exhausted, which would have contributed to the swollen shoulders. The
bay mare was very lame from an injury which could have happened in a fall.
"That one of their horses had fallen by which one of the men had broken his leg."
Doctor S. Mudd
Dr.Mudd also stated that Booth was covered with mud in many places, and the appearence of his clothes would in other respects indicate that he had been riding very rapidly.
and..He continued still to suffer and complained of severe pain in the back, especially when being moved. In my
opinion, the pain in the back may arise from riding. I judge that in this case it originated from his fall and also from riding, as he seemed to be prostrated. He sometimes breathed very shortly & as if exhausted
Peanut was 5 feet from Booth and never reported seeing anything that would indicate that Booth was injured.
Not a limp, hobble, grunt ..nothing. And yet, he's doing all of these things like running, jumping onto his horse,
hitting and kicking my-man Peanut, all with broken leg and a wrenched back? Nah, I think the horse clobbered
him ....and I really hope it squashed the snot of him.
