Everyone I am fine. I did see two of my vets that dropped out of treatment and I am worried about them . I am glad they are no longer on the street and hopefully this stay in jail will be their wake up call.
Isnt it funny that when you want to be incognito someone you know just happens to show up? Or it just me?
I have contacted my lawyer and am taking steps to cover my behind legally in case of any doubts.
Shalom

Hiya everyone!

I am new to this forum and was happy to see this sub-forum for Texans. I live just North of Austin. I'm just getting back into working with my horse after some time off for health reasons (like a year). I've hired a trainer who is going to help us both.I'm starting from the ground up with gaining her trust again, and ground manners, etc. I want to get all that firmed up before I put my butt in a saddle. Once I do get on her my trainer is going to assist with my riding. It has been a long time since I've ridden and I am determined to finally get up and have fun!
I do not have a trailer yet, but I want to get one sometime soon, but finding a tall trailer on my budget may take a miracle. I'd love to find some fellow Austinites to ride with

Here's my girl. Her name is Nyxi and she is an 11 (or so) Percheron. She was about to get her teeth floated so she wasn't too happy about that.

Happy hump day my fellow Texans!

Welcome Nyxi, glad you found us! There are a few of us in your area, I think;)

My friend got the chiros number and she will be out tomorrow. It's going to be a busy day for her with 5 - 10 horses to work on and I will be there all day as well;)

Have a wonderful Wednesday y'all!

Henny needs to be pampered(like he's ever not). Though when we were talking about after treatments with my two vets, they said a chiropractor would not be the way to go? His neck may have healed incorrectly and the chiro could do some serious damage trying to "correct" it. So that's why he gets acupuncture. But, he hasn't gotten it since last March. Bad horse mommy. I'll have to talk with my vet about getting him done when he goes in for his shots and coggins.

My doc almost NEVER refers to chiro's for our patients. They usually do more harm than good, when a patient has a pinched nerve or something like that. We send to physical therapy, who has more schooling for such matters. I've never had a chiro, come out to do the horses. Just makes me afraid, after seeing the things they do to humans!

That's what I would be worried about too, Nu. But I know for a fact the acupuncture works. His muscles contract so much during the treatment, they bend the needles! He also gets the electric therapy as well and you would think it'd freak him out, but he absolutely loves it. He nearly falls asleep during his treatments and is so calm and relaxed afterwards. It's great stuff, and may actually be cheaper than a chiro.
