I didn't even feel too much guilt about letting Amanda peer pressure me into getting these:
That is until yesterday when I got Badger's vet bill from the last four months.
Yeah. You are reading that correctly. I mean, I have it, I can pay it. I'll just have to pay off my unnecessary pretties a little more slowly than planned.
What really bothers me though is the delayed billing. My vets here at home bill me immediately when they come out. They don't wait and bill quarterly. That's crazy! This would have been a whole lot less daunting if I'd paid for each visit, or even each clump of visits on their own.
My farrier for the horses at my house leaves a bill each time he comes. My farrier that does Badger? He bills me like twice a year. So it's the same shell shock. I can't stand it!
Have you had any surprises like this show up from a vet or farrier, or worse, your TRAINER? Did you briefly consider selling all of your horses and taking up table tennis?
