Well, on tuesday my dad and I are going to be using a friend's horse trailer to trailer my horses Rebel down to a stable about an hour and a half away. The reason? We had him gelded, and since have been fighting an infection around his... you-know-what. We had the vet out and she didn't treat it right. When it came back we called again and the seinor vet diagnosed it by listening to the message. He is 99.9% sure that the gelding went wrong, and he's going to redo the surgery for free. He's delt with problems like Rebel's many times. If it isn't something that had gone wrong with the gelding, then they are going to heal him, but of course we'll have to pay.
My problem is boarding Rebel. I guess I am jelous, protective, I don't know what to call it. The thought of him being in a strange barn, with strange people taking care of him absolutly drives me crazy!!! I know he's going to be healing there, but I want to take care of him. Which I can see the writing on the wall, because the stable is so far away, my dad isn't going to want to run back and forth to give him his meds and such. Rebel should only be there a few days (or so is the plan). It will cost $20 a day, and he shouldn't be there more than a week. The cost covers people walking him if need people, monitoring him on a regular basis, and giving him his meds. I don't like it at all. I don't want strange people giving my horse medication, feeding him, and walking him without me. I want to take care of my own horse. Has anyone else ever been in this situation or felt like this? I feel like an absolute spoiled little brat, but the thought of not taking care of him myself. Ughh... He's my baby!
