There was a farmer who collected horses; he only needed one more breed to complete his collection. One day he found out that his neighbor had the particular horse breed he needed. So, he badgered his neighbor till he sold it to him.
A month later, the horse fell ill. He called the veterinarian, who said: “Well, your horse has a virus. He must take this medicine for three days. I’ll come back on the third day. If he’s not better by then, we will have to put him down.”
Nearby, the pig listened closely to their conversation. It approached the horse and said: “Be strong, my friend. Get up or else they’re going to put you to sleep!”
On the second day, the Vet gave the horse his second dosage of medicine and left.
The pig came back and said: “Come on buddy, get up or else you’re going to die! Come on, I’ll help you get up. Let’s go! One, two, three…
On the third day, the Vet examined the horse and said: “Unfortunately, we have to have to put the horse down tomorrow. Otherwise, the virus might spread and infect the other horses.”
After the Vet and the horse owner left, the pig came up to the horse and said: “Listen pal, it’s now or never. Get up…Come on…Have courage…Come on…Get up… Get up…That’s it…Slowly…Great…Come on …one… two… three… Good, good…
Now faster, come on…. Fantastic! Run, run…Yes! Yay! Yes! You did it! You’re a champion!”
Suddenly, the owner came back and saw the horse running in the field and began shouting: “It’s a miracle!”
My horse is cured. This deserves a party. Let’s kill the pig!
Point for reflection: This often happens in the corporate world. Nobody truly knows which employee actually deserves the merit of success, or who’s actually contributing the necessary support to make things happen.
