This year for some reason we've been getting more calls than usual from people all around the region..... Either their mare is suddenly pregnant (who knew??) ....or their mare just popped out a foal! What to do???
I swear we've become the regional drug cabinet!
*Mare needs worming but they don't have any Ivermectin.
*Foal needs its Selenium shot, but they don't have that OR a syringe and needle.
*Mare is cramping but they don't have Banamine...
Do we turn them away? No. But our vet is looking at us oddly because we've requested more Banamine and Selenium faster than usual. He KNOWS how many foals and horses in general we have.
We are living on a limited income and some of these folks are EXTREMELY wealthy, so I'm growling and my husband tells me to "cool it".
Sorry, but when OUR animals come up short and I have to scramble to provide for OURS, I think I have a right to GROWL.
