Part 2 of Mooseys bad day
& still worked on the horses) & was now freaking out to calm down with his head to the ground almost half asleep :) I showed them t-touch & they all went away to try it on the other horses. So now we had a spotless clean barn that was also a massage spa :) Then it happened. One of the horses colicked, one girl called out saying that Evie (the horse) wasnt acting right, then Evie just dropped. We yelled got her back up & the vet gave her pain killers, etc. & we watied. Some of the horses had only ingested the toxing juices from the bugs because when the hay is baled the bugs get mashed up & the juices are released onto the hay, then some of the bugs bodies made it through & they were completely ingested. The horses wouldnt eat because the toxins hurt their tummies & caused blisters in their stomachs & for some of the horses, in their throats & mouths. Moosey was lucky & he didnt have any sores, but we were still waiting to see what would happen next. Jane (my instructor) decided she would stay overnight at the barn & my parents brought out a couple of cots & a really cool hammock (it was SO comfy!) for some of the girls. A couple of parents brought out sodas & food & we all ate & sat around. Evie didnt get any better, & then it happened. Moosey started kicking his stall door, at first we just thought he was bored, then he wouldnt stop. He pushed his head in my hands & I just held it, he put his entire weight into my arms & he sighed this big, shaky breath. Then he put his hoof on my leg, not harshly, but lightly. I put it down because I was trying to figure out what he was doing. Jane came over & told me to watch him for 20 minutes, he was done with his IV drips so we took them off & untied him. He sat there for a couple of mintues, then he started pawing again, I watched him making sure he wasnt bored, then he went down on his knees. I yelled & clapped & got him back up & I retied him, (we now had 3 vets with us at this time) & I called over a vet. He just saw Moose standing there, & he said he was fine. I called my dad over & a couple of the girls there came over too. He pawed again for a while & then just stood there looking upset. Jane said to try again & dont stop him if he lays down, but dont let him roll because the vets were all too focused on getting more supplies. They kept on walking over & saying "Hes fine, hes fine" as if they didnt care at all, only one of them stood there & watched. Then he did it, he tried to roll & I got him back up again & the vet called over to one of the others & we tied him back up & gave him painkillers, etc. He was hooked back up to the IV. Several of the girls went in with us & pet him while I held his head. It felt like I was holding his entire body up but I didnt want to let go because the vets kept coming over & shaking their heads & adding more IV bags. My dad brought over a stool & i sat there, stroking him & talking to him. He panicked a little whenever a vet came in but I calmed him down. Soon it wa
