Standing up for yourself

Dr. Moo was on call this weekend, as she has been for many weekends owing to another vet's quadruple bypass. One client's 35YO horse wouldn't get up. Dr. Moo called her horse specialist cohort and was told 75% of the time when a horse won't get up, it's never going to get up.

However when she arrived the horse was walking around. Apparently he'd gotten up while his owners were talking about him in the past tense-"He was such a great horse," etc.-in front of him. At which point the horse thought well, f&*k you two, and got up.

Later Moo was talking with another client about a cow who wouldn't get up. It was first thing in the morning, so the farmer went in and got breakfast. He came back out to the barn after and walked by the cow, carrying his gun. The cow immediately leaped up and ran away.

Me neither, Heidi. Well, I could be a vegetable farmer. Or a dirt farmer. Or a bellybutton lint farmer. Or a toe jam farmer.

But not a cow farmer.
