Sometimes horse life worries drive me nuts. This week I had to drive back to the barn to make sure I turned off the water (I had). It’s one of those every day things where you just can’t remember if you did it yesterday . . . or today. Same with latching the feed room door, or putting the chain up across the barn door . . . or remembering when you are lying in bed that you forgot to text your hay supplier and tell him you needed hay ASAP (do you dare text at 11 p.m.? or does that make you seem too obsessive?)
I’d like to attribute my forgetfulness to COVID-19 overload and I’m worried that it might be a sign of old age, but when I saw this graphic I realized these were universal horse owner worries and I should probably not worry about the fact that I’m worrying.
What are your worries as a horse owner?
