True friends last forever
I own two horses but this is the story of Chisum.
Chisum is a blue roan yearling Quarter horse, he is still a stallion but we will probably geld him.
So the horse that I rode KC had Chisum and I remember the day like it happened yesterday.
My Mom came to get my up out of bed but I just lay there and ignored her. She went back downstairs and I heard her say, "Look, KC's had her foal!" I was out off bed, had my clothes on and was down the stairs before you could say." Get up!" I put on my coat and boots. My Mom got the camera and put on her coat and boots and we headed out.
We went out to the pasture and Mom got some pictures but, KC wouldn't let us to get close to see if the foal was a boy or girl, but I thought it was a girl because I couldn't see under it, and named it Cheyenne.
I couldn't concentrate through school all that morning because KC hadn't cleaned herself out and my aunt said that if they didn't within nine hours they'd die. Finally my Dad got home and my Mom convinced him to call the vet. The vet was scheduled to come at one.
But while we waited we went and caught KC. And come to find out the foal was a colt (boy) not a filly (girl)!
My Mom brought the camera and took some pictures, I was so proud almost as if Chisum were my own. But he was so funny because his tongue hung out of his mouth, just a quirk.
We went in to eat lunch. And finally the vet arrived between 1:30 and 2:00 pm. We gave KC a shot to make her have contractions and hopefully that would push the birth sack on out. It didn't. We took her up to the neighbors place because we weren't sure what she'd do when the vet tried to pull out her birth sack. We penned her between the fence and a gate. But she was perfectly fine when the vet pulled the birth sack out.
Once he left and we led them back home we decided to name the colt Chisum.
And he has gone from a baby newborn foal to a rambunctious yearling. But I love his quirk of snuffling my hair and blowing in it, it is so nice.
I still remember the day on March 25 2011.
'Best friends last a lifetime. True friends last forever.'
Right now I am having problems to get him to lunge, he just turns and faces me and just stands there. How can I get him to lunge?
P.S Picture later. Once I find one.
