I saw Levendi stand up after a few minutes but Chance stayed down. I then started reading way too much into that. Why didn't Chance get up as well?? Then Chance went down on his side into dead horse position. That got the internal dialogue really charged up. "Why is he on his side? Is he ok? Is he really just napping hard? Please let Chance be fine, I am not capable of dealing with another hard situation now. Oh please, please, please do not make me deal with this again, I think I will lose it . . . " Like I said, I had myself on the verge of tears and in definite panic mode.
Thankfully as I made my way to their pasture Chance popped up and came trotting over for breakfast. All was well, and my rational side knew this, but my emotional, irrational side has been in charge the last couple of days. It would be so much easier if they could all live forever.
This pastoral scene was the cause of my breakdown this morning. Levendi and Chance are the nappers, with Hemi standing in the back and Elfin grazing by the fence.
