The Magical Vet Box

May 23, 2014 8:50:53 AM

Dad’s vet truck was more a moving apparatus of greatness than an automobile

From the outside, it looked like a war relic found in WWII museums. Mud, scratches, gouges, smears and blood long ago replaced the factory-white it shipped cross-country with on a life journey those engineering designers in Detroit never intended, nor could they have dreamed.

Building and Keeping Momentum

Feb 5, 2014 9:51:49 AM

My children love the local public playground and the last time I had a day free they talked me into going.
 
The beautiful day brought several families out who all had the same idea and the grounds were alive with the screams of carefree kids.
 
One of their favorite stations is an old, iron merry-go-round with looping handles sprouting from thick diamond plating. This particular apparatus has to be a hundred years old and was built to last. It weighs a ton.

It's Time To Be a Little Selfish

Maybe It's Time To Be a Little Selfish...
“In the event that the plane loses cabin pressure while at altitude, the oxygen masks will fall from the ceiling. This is to provide adequate oxygen for the passengers. Be sure to put on your own oxygen mask before helping those around you.” Misty Korkow-Clair, Continental Airlines
 
Wow, what a year!

I Don't Know What I Don't Know

Jul 28, 2013 11:37:18 AM

Full Bucket BlogThe other day Dr. Rob and I were discussing plans for our next equitarian trip for FullBucket – probably in October. One topic led to another and we started to discuss something that both of us had wondered to ourselves a few times over the last couple of years.

You see our business exists to help those who cannot help themselves. We sell horse supplements here in the US and use those proceeds to supply nutritional supplmenetation </a>and send our team on Equtarian Initiative trips.  These are workshops performed in impoverished areas of poor countries like Mexico and Guatemala. When you’re on the ground in these areas, you are so busy trying to be useful and make a difference with your time that you don’t take notice of the larger picture or question certain aspects.

The Currency of Appreciation

Jun 18, 2013 11:31:14 AM

Not far up the road in Fort Worth is a good, old-fashioned restaurant that serves up giant plates of home cooking. I have eaten there for years and have my favorite breakfast and lunch specials. And the pie, "Oh my the pie!" The waitresses are, as you would expect of such a place, grandmotherly in stature and semi-polite with a slight bitter edge. A bustling crowd twice a day keeps the bus boys at full speed.

One man in particular has been cleaning tables there as long as I can remember. With a permanent smile on his face he scans the room with eagle eyes, constantly making sure everyone has the proper amount of silverware and napkins. When a table empties he swoops in directly behind them and with a flourish of hands and cleaning cloths he makes quite a spectacle of what is usually a boring process. With lightning speed he slides, slides and pumps the nasty mess into his plastic tub. A flip of the towels in large figure eights he slaps and swipes. Spinning plates fall perfectly into place and he twirls each fork, spoon and knife with fingertips before tapping them into position for his finale'. Badda-bing! He’s a showman.

Compassion Is Strong Medicine

Mar 9, 2013 9:44:41 AM

As I sit here all cozy at the FullBucket Headquarters in Weatherford, Texas (we call it 'The Bucket'), FullBucket’s Cofounder Dr. Rob Franklin, is embedded somewhere in the forests of Guatemala. He and several other volunteers are on-site providing veterinary services to “Working Equids” for people in areas that do not have access to or resources for such care.

Resolution - Act With Courage!

Jan 3, 2013 5:49:17 PM

Courage is a BIG word. One that I typically associate with acts of extreme bravery or heroism. People who rush into the fire, protect our country or stand up to tyranny when they are certain to lose their life have courage. Courageous are those who continue to brave the wicked storms of cancer with only the desire to have one more day. These are definite acts of courage, but recently I’ve come to realize that courage can also be discovered in smaller, more personal achievements. And if you’re keen to the varieties and manifestations, you see that courage surrounds your world, defines you.

Full Bucket BlogThis is one of the most common questions we get asked at FullBucket. The other is, “How did you choose the working equid as your cause?” Muhammad Yunus, who founded Grameen Bank in Bangladesh somewhere around the 1970s, coined the phrase "social business" as a way to describe his new enterprise. Grameen was the first microfinance company of it's kind. By distributing small loans to poor people, Grameen Bank helped free millions from poverty – literally pennies at a time. Yunus won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize for his world-changing efforts.

Giving in The Mountains of Mexico

Nov 12, 2012 5:45:11 PM

One year ago this month we embarked on a journey together (you and FullBucket, whether you know it or not). We took a perfectly good, growing nutritional supplement company and blew it up. Relaunching in February with purpose and understanding – Do Good and Be Good. There are 90+ Million working equids globally. Most of them coping with degrees of malnutrition and an over demanding daily grind.

Full Bucket BlogHey, Rob Hendrickson here with FullBucket.
Having worked with sales reps from a variety of industries I learned there are several common denominators among them – especially the rock stars. Characteristically they are very motivated, competitive people and are constantly learning new ways to improve their performance.
