I don't need a snoring dog. I already have a snoring husband and a snoring cat.

Corgi. That was cute. I got more of a giggle out of hearing you in the background and the camera shaking.

This is the second shot at posting I was almost finished and it all went into cyber space.

Stella did demonstrate her reluctance to going for a ride and I was equally as pig headed. I won. She settled after a short time and answered the bitless with no problems.

She did start off with a few issues but she could not unseat me she gave up. The ride was 3.5 house and other than the initial attempt at being a spoilt brat she was fine I take my hat off to Stella She has not had any riding out for over 4 months and she proved she is a safe horse, even if some what opinionated.

In the photos the ground is tinder dry and could go up at any time. One of the ladies in the photo infront of Stella to the right has a broken arm. It has been plastered from the arm pit to the wrist. She is going in the great NZ trek in a weeks time. Her horse is 21 years old and kills dogs. That was the horse I mentioned in an earlier post that was attacked by a pit bull and when the opertunity presented itself promptly dispatched the dog.

So in all given Stella resisted getting on the trailer and when she did tried to demolish it. But we got there. Loading to come home not so much of an issue and quiet once inside. Took the cold water shower after the ride like a trouper and then proceded to wipe her nose on my shirt. I let her have that one, as she had performed well.

Now if I can get her walking out on her own and in a relaxed way that would be the clincher and talking cinch straps, or close to. I could not get the rear cinch straps on. Her belly was to large.
It was a good ride, I'm chuffed.

Eliduc,
The world of prescription meds and doctors and supplements and herbals is downright confusing.
I really worry when I see a customer filling their cart with a ton of vitamins and herbals...some of which simply ought not be mixed. I suggest speaking with their doctor or our pharmacists. It can be dangerous.
Knowing what and when to use for good beneficial results is a wild zig zag circle to find out.

I kept my cholesterol at bay for years with diet. Evidently heredity pushed ahead in the race, and now I am on a low dose of Creator. Sigh. Ticks me off that I can no longer have grapefruit or grapefruit juice...which l love. Dang it.

I had to be on steroids for a while to reduce inflammation in my eyes. The pressures in my eyes were reaching the danger zone of harming optic nerves. The steroids did indeed reduce the inflammation and pressure, but they turned my stomach into a mess. As well as caused weight gain. I am vain, dammit! dislike the extra pounds that refuse to let go.

The things we endure to be healthy! Worth it, of course.

Lol! The auto-correct feature on my Xoom tablet changed Crestor to Creator.
