There was a farmer who collected horses,he only needed one more breed tocomplete his collection. One day, he foundout that his neighbor had the particularhorse breed he needed.
So, he constantly bothered hisneighbor until he sold it to him. Amonth later, the horse became illand he called the veterinarian, whosaid: Well, your horse has a virus. He must take this medicine for three days. Ill come back on the 3rd day and if hes not better, were going to have to put him to sleep.
Nearby, the pig listened closely totheir conversation.The pig approached the horse andsaid: Be strong, my friend. Get up or else theyre going to put you to sleep!
On the second day, they gave himthe medicine and left. The pig cameback and said: Come on buddy, get up or else youre going to die! Come on, Ill help you get up. Lets go! One, two, three...
On the third day, they came to give himthe medicine and the vet said: Unfortunately, were going to have to put him down tomorrow. Otherwise, the virus might spread and infect the other horses.
After they left, the pig approached the horseand said: Listen pal, its now or never! Get up, come on! Have courage! Come on! Get up! Get up! Thats it, slowly! Great! Come on, one, two, three... Good, good. Now faster, come on.... Fantastic! Run, run more! Yes! Yay! Yes! You did it, youre a champion!!!
All of a sudden, the owner came back, sawthe horse running in the field and beganshouting: Its a miracle! My horse is cured. This deserves a party.
Points for reflection: This often happens in the workplace.Nobody truly knows which employee actually deserves themerit of success, or whos actually contributing the necessarysupport to make things happen.
