Me and the Pig

Posted on January 4, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

A farmer was collecting horses of different breeds; he needed one more to complete his collection. He noticed that his neighbor had a horse of that breed and, after long persuasion, bought it.

A month later, the horse became ill. The veterinarian said, “Your horse has a virus. He must take this medicine for three days. If he is not better by that time, we have to put him down”.
The farmer’s pig standing nearby, heard this conversation. Next day, after the vet gave the medicine and left, the pig approached the horse and said: “Be strong, my friend. Get up or else they are going to put you to sleep!”

On the second day, too, the pig said: “Come on buddy, get up or else you are going to die! Come on, I will help you get up. Let us go! One, two, three… “
On the third day, the vet said: “Unfortunately, we have to put   him down tomorrow. Otherwise, the virus might spread and infect the other horse.”
After they left, the pig approached the horse and said “Listen, friend, it is now or never! Get  up, Come on, one, two, three…. Good, good.”

Now faster, come on… Fantastic! Run, run more! Yes! Yes! Yes! You did it, you are a champion!!!!”

All of a sudden, the owner came back saw the horse running in the field and began shouting: “ It is a miracle! My horse is cured. This deserves a party. Let us kill the pig and make a feast…!
Points for   reflection: This happens often. Nobody truly knows who actually deserves the credit for success or who  is actually contributing the necessary support to make things happen.

The roots below the earth claims
No rewards for making the branches fruitful.
