So Saturday was Kokomo’s day to scare me, and last night was Sinatra’s. He bolted his grain and within seconds was choking. It was 7:30 when it happened and I knew Hannah was in the middle of putting Cadillac down, but I called to give her a heads up and pulled his food (much to Phoenix’s dismay, who shares a stall with him) and stroked his neck to help get the blockage to pass. Fortunately, he passed it on his own quickly.
Now both Phoenix and Sinatra get their grain tubs complete with several large rocks — a trick I learned a while back to keep horses from bolting their grain.
