It was on February 26th of this year that we called the vet out for the first time to look at Haakon who was slowly declining and showing signs that something was very wrong. As you may know, I was hugely worried.
Anywho, last night Haakon said he didn’t want to go to bed in his stable and broke with routine to go out in the field with the rest of the horses. He has spent the last couple of months either standing/lying in his stable on very deep bedding or outside where he could see his friends but was not actually be with them in the field. We wanted him kept as peaceful as possible and out of the deep winter mud that is everywhere.
Last night, Haakon wanted to be with his herd.
And they were pleased to have him back.
Haakon was his usual anti-social self.
But I don’t care, Haakon had asked to go out for the first time and he finally wanted to get back to normal.
You have no idea what a huge weight fell off my shoulders. Suddenly I can breathe again.
I have been so worried and scared about the whole ordeal. I am not good when a beloved animal is ill. Not good at all.
We are still taking things slowly. This morning, Haakon came out of the field so he could graze without standing in the now quickly drying mud. He has gone back out again tonight and, although tired, seems much happier.
Little steps – that’s Haakon’s annoyed stop-hassling me face!
