Horses

I was going to take the horses today to the vet to get their Coggins Test. This prove to be a futile exercise. Crystal started rearing up so there was no loading her. Precious loaded right on the trailer then after she was hitched in there she started panicking. Luckily I was able to calm her down enough to release her without anyone or her getting hurt. The reasons of Precious panic attack goes back to here Precious and here is some more, and here. That was the last time she was on a trailer. As far as Crystal we have no idea what is wrong. She used to load with no trouble but now she fights. All I wanted to do was save about $100 by taking them there not having vet come here. How am I supposed to take them anywhere if I cannot get them to load?

o well I guess I will get back to my interupted cleaning. I hate cleaning. I need to be rich and have a full time housekeeper!

  1. Sorry you could not get the horses to load.  It is always nice to save money if you can but if they are that stressed out then it is better not to put them through it.

  2. I would like a housekeeping fairy of my own!

    Sorry about the horses, but you don't want them overstresed anwyay, do you? Can you slowly desensitize them to being loaded? A little every day or once a week or however often would work?

    Lord, I am glad that we only have to chip in and pay for the vet to come to the boarding stable for Dakota and Strawberry's stuff.  You are the first to know we've added another horse to our family!!

  7. For a second, I thought of something WAY different when you said you had to "load" the horses!

  8. What a horrible story. Why was Precious in a pasture with a stud horse and another mare? That is craziness. She is very lucky. Precious looks like a lovely mare. C'mon over and visit the reservation sometime, horselovers are always welcome!
