Taking A Chill Pill...

Today, my BO offered to take over feeding Rigsby.

This is where a perfectionist, control freak horse owner pretty much has a panic attack.

Rigsbys feed program is pretty meticulous. What if they don't add the aloe vera juice? What if they don't mix it properly and he separates his supplement from his feed into an expensive little pile? What if, what if, what if?

What if I take a deep breath, a chill pill; and calm the fuck down?

The Ultimate Chill Pill

The benefits of this soooooo outweigh my paranoid thoughts. 

Imagine my horse fed, and given ample time to digest his food by the time I arrive at the barn? This means we can go directly into training/playing! Why the hell didn't I think of this before? Oh yeah. Because I'm a perfectionist, control freak. 

Is this enlightenment/extra training time worth $100 more a month? 

It's absolutely Priceless.

  1. Been there! I know how you feel! I just moved to a new barn, doubled my board, and still don't have them feeding his supplement (that I put where it was supposed to with his name on and, when he gets it, and where he lives). His weight remains good, but his old joints are suffering a bit since he isn't getting his joint supplement EVERY DAY... On the other hand, my husband is thrilled to see me 3 days a week instead of watching me live at the barn. And I'm getting tons more time in the saddle!!

    Once we get the supplument thing on track, I'll be in business! High Five for "perfectionist, control freak horse owner"!
