You and me both lol, the word "crap" seems to be appearing more and more often these days, along with other words I shall not make mention of
I am, it does help that I'm training to be a vet nurse, in an actual veterinary workplace, so I have vets right at my fingertips (though I don't usually use those ones for my horses because they're small and large animal vets)
I live on a dairy farm, so I've known how to pull a calf since I was born, assuming the technique is the same or similar I should be good. I can also spot the difference between breach position and non-breach position just by looking at the hooves as they peek out of mum.
I blimming hope her behavior problems are just hormone related cause the darn horse broke my foot a few months ago! But she was as sweet as anything tonight..
I gave her a good scratch on the head and around her ears until she stopped asking, at which point she shifted forwards and waved her big bum in my face.. Apparently bending around to get it herself is all too much effort now hehe
So many emotions from my side though, never expected that... I'm excited bt nervous, though also peeved off at the naiive-ness(for lack of a better word) of the previous owner.
