18th April, 2007

I have taken Piper to the vets today in time for his castration which is due to take place tomorrow. I felt awful leaving him there but he is in the capable hands of Ruby, the Veterinary Nurse who declared herself in love with him at first sight. I have changed veterinary practices because I felt that the vets at The Barn were far more in tune with the type of work that I do with horses. They took my concerns about Piper's welfare very seriously and understood that I wanted to be around as much as possible. Health and Safety rules and insurance requirements mean that I can't stay with him throughout the operation (he is having a general anaesthetic) but I wanted to be with him the moment he woke up properly.
