I went out to my garden by the barn and heard splashing in the horse tank. I saw movement and ran to see what the heck was going on when an exhausted squirrel rose up and tried desperately to claw her way out of the metal tank. She couldn't and was swimming in circles.
I grabbed a hoe and after a few failed attempts, got her out. I was afraid to touch her with my hands because of fleas and potential disease. She finally used her teeth to bite the edge of the hoe and I was able to lift her out to safety.
She just laid on the ground, exhausted. Too weak to move but breathing. I was going to leave her there but then my horse came over and tried to stomp her with his hoof. Haflingers do that kind of thing.
Finally, I got her moved out of the horse pen and she laid on the ground for hours before she could move. Finally, off she went. The End.
Well not really. I think she's the same one who comes into the garage to eat dry dog food and crawls up the side of the house and peeks in the window sometimes. The real End.
I like cherry pie with vanilla ice cream.
I though there were only hoes in inner cities.
I like your story. :)
Did it have a pancake on its head?
My aardvark shadow farts but doesn’t break wind...
I got to call your bluff. My elected official has convinced me people don’t do anything for anyone, or anything else, unless the government mandates it, and controls it. Nice try though.
Laz once saved a drowning ho from a horse tank with a squirrel.
This was a garden variety hoe.
What was a horse tank doing with a hoe?
Are horse tanks what the heavy calvary use?
The horse part is the worst.Nice you have animals.
Are they cheaper?
I like your story very much also. Good job. I’m always amazed watching the athletic ability of squirrels. You probably saw one in one of the only situations he couldn’t get himself out of.
No, the heavy calvary uses large wooden crosses.
I don’t have farm animals any more. The Feds made it too hard. Just my dogs now.
Nice catch. Its late. Time for bed.
Dirty deeds cheap.
Thanks for that kind thought.
