    CS- all the critters look so cute all decked out for the 4th! DH spent the day getting another motor attached to our house water pump as the old one was about to go out due to the freeze we had earlier this year, that caused a leak, & subsequent corrosion. So glad he, w/the help of his Dad, can fix things like this.

    Due to the slow growing grass over the past week. Not enough sunlight, I let the horses into the yard to munch on the lawn. SWMBO is not home. Stella bless her has again got into the veg garden. She does tip toe around but it does not matter how gentle she tries to be the evidence is always there. Thank heaven Roslyn is not coming home in daylight and will leave early in the morning, not finding out the garden has been pruned until Monday when I am safely at work.

    Bugs Now I think I have a problem he is running around like a mad thing, not his normal behavour. It could be today is fine and the sun is out or he is developing a bit of an attitude. So on the basis he is developing attitude I need someone to come on over and take him for a ride. Get the bumps out of him befor I get on. Any takers.

    I will do it Stan. No problem! Be right there .

    I get a big kick out of you letting the horses out when Ros is not around only to know you will be in big trouble later, lol.

    I would love to see NZ one day Stan! I will come down and ride Bugs for you!

    Who am I kidding? My lack of confidence would make Bugs a very happy boy. He would have my number the minute I climbed aboard.

    Isabella had her second myofascial release treatment this morning. The first one worked miracles on her back end so today was concentrated on her neck and shoulders. She is such a good girl..standing perfectly still in the barn aisle without being tied while the therapist is manipulating those tissues. When the myofascia would release, Isabella's eyes would roll back and her lip would droop and she would give a huge sigh.

    I can't wait to ride her tomorrow night. After the last treatment, she was so willing to do anything I asked of her and really wanted to canter all over the farm. The therapist said she may not need another treatment. It was definitely worth the money I spent.

    She has to rest for 24 hours so I rode the BO's paso fino again tonight! What a hoot! He is such a confidence builder. When you cross water on him he doesn't hesitate. He puts his feet anywhere. Every step he takes is a confident one. I find that when I get on Isabella after riding the paso, I am a better rider and she senses it.

    Tomorrow night may be a very good ride!

    Enjoying the pics! Keep em coming!

    Ladona, would you mind explaining to me what you are doing to Isabella? I think I missed it.

    Isabella has been experiencing a lot of stiffness from what I thought was arthritis. She has been on joint supplements and an all natural pain reliever. (B-L Pellets)

    But lately she seemed to be getting worse and I didn't want to start adequan injections. I belong to a Virginia Horses facebook group and someone suggested I check out MFR therapy.

    I contacted a local certified therapist who came out 3 weeks ago. I did not give her a lot of info beforehand. I just said that my horse had been diagnosed with arthritis and told her that my vet said it was fine to try more natural treatments.

    She watched her walk and immediately told me that Isabella's right hip was higher than her left which was throwing her entire body out of whack. She also had me watch her walk from the side and take notice of now her spine had ZERO movement and that the spine should be fluid when she walks.

    She worked on her for over an hour and when she was done, Izzy's hips were even and her spine was moving beautifully. If I hadn't seen it with my own two eyes, I wouldn't believe it.

    Myofascia is like scar tissue that builds up and hinders movement, making horses ( and humans) compensate in other ways, causing issues and pain. MFR breaks up or releases the tissue and frees up the movement once again.

    It is an approach that is starting to gain popularity because it can lessen the use of medications and injections and is 100% natural.

    I totally see a difference in her movement. She has always been so "tense" and I have discovered it is because she has a lot of myofascia, probably from the years of being a polo pony.

    Here is a link to the therapist I used. It has more info. She also works on people.
