Are you guys tired of the Roscoe Saga yet?
Good, because here is the most recent update.
I had mixed feelings about what I wanted to hear today from the vet. If the vet said Roscoe was done and ready to go home, I would have to brave a solo trailer trip for the first time. Mom, Dad and Peggy went to PA for a carriage/harness auction yesterday. But my boy would be home. On the other hand, if he had to stay it would be a scheduling nightmare going to pick him up later.
So I informed the vet to call my cell phone since I was farm sitting for Peggy. At work I put it on vibrate and carried it in my pocket (big no no) while I gave a training class. And of course the vet called while I was training. I never felt the thing vibrate. Well although Roscoe has improved, he still needs time to fine tune his technique.
No little red boy in the barn this weekend.

4. The test cool for his semen provided an acceptable shipping protocol for him. He responded well to one extender, ok to another and the third won't have results until tomorrow. That means I don't have to pay an additional amount to test two other possible extenders.
We do have to buy another head piece to his halter, since he broke it when they put the chain on him while tied. Why they did that, I have no idea. It seems if you have balls, you have to wear a chain every time. Ah well, he will survive. Only 3-4 more days. I can't wait to have him home.
