I have discovered that there's NOTHING that causes me more worry and stress than something wrong with my animals!!! And that goes triple for Satire!
I have been a wreck for 3 days because Satire coliced Thursday afternoon. I was there and we called the vet right away. Because of his history last year, she tubed him and gave him a gallon of oil. And some pain medication.
He had no food except grass for two days until things started moving through.
No poop, no food!!
Yes, a big pile of manure can be a beautiful thing!!!!
We were pretty much at the barn all day and part of the nights. The barn owner keeps checking on him too.
Well, thank goodness he is doing much better now and is up to 1/2 rations today and more tomorrow if everything continues to be good.
This is him today. He is feeling just fine and doesn't know what all the fuss is about!
Of course I feel another 10 years older and my stomach is a mess! My daughter hasn't slept or eaten either.
I feel a little more relaxed tonight because he had such a good day today.
He had a good roll in the saw dust. (The good kind of roll!)
Please offer up a prayer for this beautiful soul. We love him so much.
He's quite spoiled from all the attention that he has gotten this whole past year.
When you're not giving him what he wants he reaches out and shakes his stable bag!!!Shirley
(a nervous wreck)
