Sunday Morning, going out the back door to feed. Look out across the pastures, you know doing the head count thing. And what do I see, my yearling pally filly, with her head threw the fence, and not moving. She had stuck her head threw to snack on the neighbors hay field. Shoot, oh, no here we go again, Another vet bill, more DMSO IVs and stitches. CRAP!
KIRT, Gracie's stuck in the fence, come on! He putting grout on the walls in the kitchen, So we walk very slowly and very quiet to her pasture, Now, Im thinking, Vet, tetnus, check her records, should have gotten the Rompin, or ace before I came down here, Shoot! What was I thinking.
Still can't see her damage since a post/railroad tie is between she and I, Im talking to her, and nickers softly to me. But Frozen not moving an inch. The ground is packed, where she had moved her back end back and forth from being there so long, so I could tell she had been there awhile.
Right on her now, Not a scratch! I rubbed her favorite spot, Kirt spread the wires, which was not even tight, I told her back, and she backed right out! Then she turned to Kirt, he became her Hero! She was all over him, like a puppy dog. Oh, pet me. Oh, Im so glad to see you, She followed him, and kept bumping him, from behind, like rub me know, Im sooooo glad you came. He left the pasture, with me still in it, and nickered to him, like come back... And Im standing there! Hey, I saved you too! I feed you, nope she related HIM to saving her! grrrrr Im jealous now..
Anyway, she must have felt that slight pressure on her poll and that was it. She just stood still. Not even a scratch! Good Lord was watching her for us on this one. Unlike her brother last year..
Glad she had enough sense about her not to panic, our fence is 5 strands of smooth wire with 2 strands of Electric on the inside of it. Well, we saw where the electric was not working, so guess we will be working on that friday, mean while she is tucked away in a stall and a happy camper.
One more thing to be thankful this Thanksgiving!
