VCBH: Fess up to your mistakes

Says Viva Carlos, "Horse ownership is kind of like trial by fire. I for one am all about transparency, I own up to my humanity so today I am gonna fess up to one of my biggest horse care mistakes. Will you fess up to yours?"

Other than not riding as often as I should?  Because that's a mistake.

I handled a colic episode as wrongly as can possibly be.  I was operating on old information and was freaked right the hell out to boot, and things went to utter shit.   It's the biggest and most painful regret of my adult life.

So maybe you'll forgive me if I don't go into detail.


  1. Understandable. Some lessons seem to be more about realizing our own weaknesses and knowledge gaps, the really really hard way. Sorry you went through what sounds horrible.

  2. If only they could talk to us, it would make things so much better!

  3. We can only do what we can do. Hugs.
