Dear barn staff,
This weekend, someone was a moron. My horse had a scrape on her forehead, and some brainiac had the big idea to place her cribbing collar* directly over this scrape while I was gone. With the end result that when I arrived back 3 days later the strap had dug into her forehead and I had to call the vet to remove a flap of dead flesh – which will leave a scar AND make her already wimpy forelock even more pathetic.
I’m not sure how you even got the cribbing strap on her since she wasn’t keen on having the area touched when I left thursday night. You probably had to wrestle it on. I hope my horse stomped on your foot while you were tightening leather over her open wound.
Your inability to pay attention turned a routine scrape into a veterinary procedure that cost me $124.53 this morning, and my horse can’t wear a bridle for a month. Thanks, dimwit! :mad:
