I have had mild bouts of colic, plenty of stitches (thank you Houston), cellulitis, the list goes on… But I have never had a horse suffer from choke. I was not prepared to get that dreaded phone call this morning that my sweet mare was having difficultly breathing and was in distress. Cue panic. Annie is in Louisville with me which is both good and bad. I can’t help but feel like this is somehow my fault even though I know that rationally I give my horses the best care that I can. I take as much precaution as possible while traveling yet I still feel as though I did my horse a disservice.
I planned to recap this weekend yesterday and today… I was going to go into detail and share amazing pictures about how much fun I had with Annie. I’ll still get to that but today I am just thankful that my sweet mare worked through the issue with minimal interference and will be back to normal in no time. Some of you might think I am a drama queen and maybe I am. But I am a thankful DQ!
