it was one of those disasterous barn bedtime things...i got home at 530 and came in the house and picked up the mop...i ordered pizza for jenn and i cuz A..we are watching a movie...and B because she did such a good job organizing all the incoming info on the blog. at quarter to six, she said aren't you putting the barn guys to bed?...oh...yes i am..i should have looked at them when i got home but shame on me i didn't.
when i got out to the barn..there was gideon and czar chowing down on a knocked over bucket of old/discarded chicken house feed.
holy fucking shit!!! get out now and what the hell is that doing there anyhow?????!!!!! omg! it is one of those things that happens, it happens to you, it happens to me....massive brain farts and the next thing you know the horses are eating something they are not supposed to eat.
(note to everyone...all dumped feed from any area goes IMMEDIATELY into the dumpster please.)
it looks like they got about a quarter of the bucket..hard to tell because some of it was scattered around on the ground. still, it means another couple of days of watching and worrying and for sure checking on them thru out tonight every couple of hours.
it did not help that there was no cool calories, no apples for bedtime and some of the feed bins were empty..it all played together in a massive mess of miscommunication to screw up bedtime tonight.
i said to jenn , it is god damn conspiracy to kill me (cuz i KNOW no one wants to kill gideon or czar)
i need to get out of rescue, there are too many disasters waiting at home to happen for me...i don't want the stress of it any more...i just wanted to come home and share a pizza and a movie with my daughter. rescue sucks big time today/
(big sigh...i can hear it coming, shades of swinger....... oh yay....anyway...it happened, and ignoring it or pretending it didn't won't make it go away.)
