First Call in Texas, Ring Lost in a Horse Pen - Found

  • from Harker Heights (Texas, United States)

Got a text while on vacation from Dee, whose wedding ring had slipped off her finger while she was taking care of her horses. Went to find it a day or two after I got back, following some heavy rain.  Between the mud, the standing water and the…um…horse residue, it was quite a new, and dirtier than usual, experience for me. After a couple of hours of fruitless searching, I told her I’d come back when things had dried out a bit.  Contacted her a week or so later, and went back over to search.  First thing she told we was how the water was rushing along the edge of the pen when she dropped her ring. As there wasn’t much of a ground slope, I was a bit skeptical, but I expanded my search area. Proving the adage that “the customer is always right”, I located her ring, luckily undamaged by horse traffic, in the expanded area, after an hour or so of searching.  Giddy up!
