Chubbypony, I hope it all works out for you!

Don't have one right now. I have used them before. I put some Rub-A535 on it, and hopefully that'll help. I might get a heating pad at work tomorrow.

I sleep on my heated blanket after my body is sore it seems to help. I need to find my dog one that is "dog safe". :)

It's already started getting cold here, and it's only March (early autumn). It was 37C on Wednesday but a cold spell came around and now it's about 11-13C and wet

I was diagnosed last month with borderline personality disorder which was a bit of a horrid shock and medication isn't working at all. Therapy should work better but it's soooo expensive - $130 a fortnight. If it doesn't suit me after 5 sessions I'll quit and part-lease a horse instead, horses are great therapists. There's also a riding centre for disabled people nearby-ish that I might volunteer at on weekends if I can work out how to get there. I'm missing horses BAD.

Good news regarding Brock - the lady leasing him is selling his paddock buddy (he'll still have buddies over the fence) because she doesn't have time to ride both of them. But the whole family is in love with Brocky so they're more than happy to keep him. He's behaving perfectly for the farrier, and has lovely manners and is extremely affectionate - and good with her kids! I'm sooooo happy, this is all the stuff I worked so hard on with him - he was good when I leased her but I was afraid that he might slip back into his bad ways. But he hasn't! He's still a wuss when it rains though, he dashes into the barn

Here he is, looking all dappled in his summer coat

Sorry to hear of your diagnosis EHOD. :(
Hopefully you/your doctors will be able to find something that helps soon..

Brocky looks so nice and I'm glad he's having a good time! I also hope that you will find a solution for your diagnosis. Must be tough, but at least you know the name of the problem!

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Well the therapy is supposed to have a 75% success rate for treating it in 2-6 years so that sufferers are essentially symptomless, which is very good for a mental illness - so that's the good news! Just need to win the lottery to be able to afford the darned sessions My partner has been helping me pay them so far but he has legal fees to cover until the end of May so I feel bad if he's having to help me too.

Hey all - just now joining this thread even though I've been on HF for quite a while! Need some new excitement. Lol..

You can call me Nay, I live in Central Washington (state), I'll be 25 in June, was blessed to grow up around horses. Grew up trail riding and doing various horsemanship clinics, started showing in cutting about 2 years ago! Along with various Quarter Horse's that my family owns, I own a 7 year old QH named Dually (registered name is Kit Down N Dirty) who is my cutting show horse. I am absolutely in love with him. So, I'll try and post more about our adventures in cutting as the season goes on!

oh, PICTURES! I forgot to add pictures!
Here's a few of Dually and I - please ignore my bad form, it was our first year cutting and hadn't got the whole balance-and-keep-your-butt-glued-to-the-seat yet ;) Dually is a grandson of Dual Pep, and also has Smart Little Lena on both his dam and sires sides - most athletic horse I've ever ridden! And the sweetest boy ever. Loves to cuddle, loves people, and sooo mellow.
