Potential Equine Emergency
I'm anal about how I keep my horses. I try to make sure I look at them every day or if I can't look at them, I make sure someone else can look at them for me. I've been going over board to make sure Joe Bear gets fed twice a day and puts on some weight. Last night I had him separated out so he could eat a little extra Thrive. I have been feeding it to him free choice since he can't chew grass or hay. I left him a bucket of water and and the promise to return this am. Well, I almost forgot him. I went to see my first client and had a long day up to Paradise after that when I remembered that I had left Joe in the front of the field with a single bucket of water on a 100+ degree day. So, I had to rearrange my day to go let the little guy out. I felt so bad, forgetting my daughter's pony and almost letting him go that way all day...I shudder to think what might have happened. So, now my next week has become busy with make up appointments and I'm home watching Dear John and doing my sewing. I'm so happy I have understanding clients and a flexible job or I could have been in real trouble.
