    I turned Aires out with CJ today because CJ needed some exercise (he got ridden yesterday, but my friend was in Phoenix all day today, so couldn't get out to exercise him and didn't want him to lock up, so she asked me to walk him or turn him out). He was completely CRAZY! Hand-trotted him to the turnout (okay, I admit we were kind of showing off, but still lol), then when we got to the turnout, he tried to bolt before I had even tried to take his halter off and wouldn't stand still for me to get it off. When I FINALLY managed to get it off, he bolted off at a full gallop and started bucking and farting. He rolled, then took off galloping and bucking and farting and trying to get CJ to be crazy with him. He's such a psycho, but it's totally unlike him!!

    Then, when I went to bring him in so he could eat, he was doing okay, but then as I went to open the gate after haltering him, he tried to bite the hand I was using to open the gate! He was a gentleman walking to his stall (which surprised me beyond words!) and even stood nicely and didn't try to go to his food while I took off his halter. I just don't know what his deal is!

    Drafty, I can't remember how old he is -- could he be teething? Or have retained caps? Or wolf teeth? They are still getting their teeth in until 4 1/2, I think, and it can affect bitting and make them mouthy like babies teething.

    He'll be 3 on May 7th. I'm 90% sure he doesn't his wolf teeth yet (checked day before yesterday, but he doesn't really like his mouth messed with, so it was a quick glance), but that doesn't mean they aren't possibly coming in. Not sure about the others, to be honest.

    Sky, he was definitely commanding attention. Considering the earth friggin' SHAKES when he goes faster than a walk, it's difficult to ignore him. Lol

    Okay, so I'm 96% sure Aires needs his teeth done. *sigh* My friend text me this morning at around 10am and said that Aires was the only one still eating when she got to the barn. Generally speaking, he's usually the first one done and vacuuming up any scraps he missed, then looking for more. So, that could be what's causing all the wild and crazies. This had to happen when I don't have any extra money (have to get my truck out of impound hopefully Monday, which is going to take the rest of my tax money, plus I have to pay my best friend back for the tickets that she paid for for me to go see her in Spokane this spring, but the airline went under and isn't refunding anyone's tickets). Sometimes I wonder why I try. I'm going to try to sell some stuff (my kidneys are in decent shape since I don't drink...I could probably get a fair amount for them...I kid!) to pay her back and get enough money to do Aires' teeth. What sucks is that I was supposed to have Aires paid off by May and because of my truck, it isn't going to happen. FML.

    Okay, so this is an update for me, not Aires, really.

    I have my follow-up orthopedist appointment for my shoulder in the morning. Not sure what's going to happen. My insurance absolutely refuses to pay for out-patient physical therapy. The PT place called them twice to check, I called them AND my ortho wrote a letter. All to be told no. To make it worse, my shoulder has started clicking/snapping at the oddest times. I'll reach for something or in the morning when I wake up and stretch, it sounds like someone is snapping their fingers, but it's my AC joint. :-/ So yeah.

    In other news, I got my truck back! Lol It cost me $695 at the impound yard, plus about $300 to get my license reinstated, my plates reinstated and my insurance. So, I'm back to being broke beyond belief.

    Well, it's official. I have orthroscopic shoulder surgery scheduled for March 29th. They will be shaving down the end of my clavicle to make room in my AC joint and they will be removing as much of the bone spur under my shoulder blade as they can. The bone spur is pinching my muscle of my rotator cuff and causing irritation and pain there, which is limiting my range of motion. The ortho said he might also end up having to reattach my bicep to my clavicle, depending on how frayed it is where it attaches now (I have a lot of pain at the front of my shoulder joint, right where the bicep crosses/attaches).

    If all he has to do is the bone shaving, he said I'll be back to work in a week and fully recovered in three to six weeks. If he has to reattach the bicep, it will be a MUCH longer recovery (three to six MONTHS).

    I hope this surgery does the trick!
