I was thinking about something yesterday. I don't let my vet, dentist or farrier come out for an appointment unless my friend or myself is going to be there. Its a pain in the butt sometimes, on some occassions I have to take off work or leave early. Id rather just supervise everyone then worry about whos there. My farrier lives close and is very flexible and my vet works sometimes till 11pm, so its not a huge deal.
We had a vet, here in bucks county, who got his license taken away because he was beating horses, most owners didnt know about it. I have never met him, but I used his partner in the practice a few times. Most people were in shock when it came out. So I think twice about who is around my horses now.
Does anyone else so this? Am I over protective?
I used to babysit children for people and they took less care with their kids then I with my horses.
