    Ugh. Just spent my afternoon freeing a yearling filly who had her entire leg wedged up under a board in her stall. I don't want to get into all the details, but she was already in such poor condition to begin with and this happenening shouldn't have been possible to begin with. After getting her leg out, we tried and tried to get her on her feet, but to no avail. She either injured her leg or is just too exhausted. I called the owner and let him know about it and that he needed to get the vet out right away. He didn't seem to care much It broke my heart to have to leave (I would have stayed but my 6 year old is really sick) She was laying sternal eating hay when we I left her.
    I'm so bothered by this. All I can say is that I absolutely can not wait to move and get the hell away from his barn.

    I'm sitting here with my stomach in knots. I just know I will hear the distant gun shot soon.

    See - that breaks my heart too - my horses aren't just 'using stock' they are pets and I care about them and everything related to them to the point of OCD (of course I only have 4 and not 20) UGH - Maybe she will be up on her feet soon? Did she drink any H2O? What can you do - that's awful.

    Good news!! We got her up and she's ok! My hubby and I went back down as soon as we could a little bit ago. It took a lot to finally get her on her feet, but we finally did. She immediately dropped the hardest and most compacted poo (which tells me she was down for a while) and peed. She had a nice long drink of water and ate. I am so relieved I actually cried. The barn owner still wasn't back so I'm glad we went back and were able to help her. She's just a pitiful little thing. So skinny.

    Clippity I'm the same way. My horses are not just tools or a way to make money or whatever. They are beloved pets! It infuriates me when someone has the attitude like my barn owner and just doesn't care. He doesn't deserve them!

    Glad to hear she's doing better, and glad to hear you're willing to get her out of that situation. I bawl my eyes out any time Henny gets seriously hurt. The first time he choked I couldnt help but cry on the phone to my mom. Lord knows I cried until I couldn't cry any more, then cried even MORE the night of Henny's accident! it's sad to know that some people don't have the same compassion.

    Storm coming your way, Kay. It's kicking our butts right now!

    Same here same storm system.....lots of thunder. I'm just glad that it isn't ice and sleet. I'm SO DONE with winter!

    One more week and I can reclaim my horse trailer from the chickens. They'll move to the 'teenager' pen and I can clean that thing out. The food they spill and make a mess with has an odor that smells like soured corn. Then I'll finally be able to haul my horses in for new coggins and then be able to catch up with friends to ride...hopefully some place with no pigs.
