    Wow what an evening for me. I just got to struggle through pouring rain and mud dealing with my mare. Piggy had choke and it was just awful. Gagging, mucous, she went down, the whole bit. I called the vet right away to come have her tubed. I got her into the barn in the dry and she continued to gag and wretch. She finally got it dislodged THANK GOD! She started munching on some hay on the ground and acting herself again. I called the vet back and let him know she had gotten it out, so he didn't come since there was no need to any more.

    That scared the sh** out of me. I cried when she was gasping because I felt so helpless. I love her to pieces and would be devastated if this killed her, not to mention if I would have lost her Pan would be orphaned.


    Tbj glad it went so well for you! Sounds like you had a great time!

    Kc, beautiful pics of such nice looking kids!

    Out, in spite of my crappy events this evening, when I saw that pic of when you walk in all I could see was lights shining down from heaven. Please tell me this store is close to Springtown!

    Because she's a pig and was scarfing her food down. She's on a pellet feed, and she obviously didn't chew it and some got lodged. She wasn't a bolter previously, but lately she has gotten worse. My guess is to hurry and eat it before the other mare in with her has a chance to run her off and take it. So I will be wetting it down from now on so this won't happen again.

    Ems my mare began choking like that on grain a little over a year ago. I moisten her food slightly and put big rocks in her bowl that I find alongside the railroad tracks. That way she has to work around the rocks to get her grain and it slows her down so she doesn't choke. She hasn't choked since then.

    So glad your mare overcame that, Ems. I had a couple choke scares with Henny last year. He choked TWICE in one week. I cried the first time on the phone to my mom. It's such a scary thing to go through. Luckily my dad and I were able to massage his throat and he promptly coughed up the stuck feed on me. Never have I been so happy to have spit up on me.

    Did anyone else get that crazy thunder/hail storm yesterday evening? We had a crazy flash flood after the groundwork clinic and then it starting hailing! Throw some crazy lightning and thunder in there and it was a crazy storm. The irrigation ditches were full within half an hour! It was insane.
