So Hermes is scheduled to come home today, and we will be picking him up from the hospital, if we can make through the 2 feet of snow we got in the last two days! Thanks everyone for the prayers and well wishes, hopefully he will be on the road to recovery and a long life! It does make you think how much you can take forgranted that these animals are in your life day in and day out until you become very close to losing them.
So we had to put off getting Hermes till today because of all the snow, but he's finally home! But my next question to everyone, is how in the world do you keep from going crazy thinking he's going to colic again? As soon as we got him home today and I got him back in his stall he rolled, I know it was just because he had fresh shavings and no horse can resist fresh shavings, but I started to freak a little. Then he left some of his food, which is very unlike him, but I had mixed some bute paste in there and he hates that stuff. So how do I keep from assuming the worst of everything, and move on from this? Any words of advice from someone who has been in my shoes?
That is a feeling that will not go away for a long time I have been there my self to this day and it has been 6 yrs every so often I have a panic attack I just take a deep breath and say to my self look first
