That's a good point, silverspear. Of course, with the English degree, I could always take a few teacher prep courses and have my teaching cert, if later I decide to go that route. I hate decisions! Lol

Cinder, I gain incredibly easy. Losing has always been a struggle, though. When I'm active, it comes off more easily, that's for sure.

Cakemom, I don't like having my picture taken. Lol The one exception has been that photo montage for the BGPs thread.

I meant him silly!! I hate mine taken as well, so I get it, but can't get enough of what hubby calls "horse porn", which would be photos of lovely horsies!!

OMG! The "horse porn" thing made me seriously snort! One of my old managers used to tease me all the time that the horse magazines we'd get donated being my "porn."

The newest pics I have of Aires are up in my thread: Just some pics of Aires

Just realized that I've forgotten to update about my shoulder.

I went to one session of physical therapy. The therapist totally contradicted my doctor and said that I had too much strength in my shoulder for the rotator cuff to be torn (well, of course it has strength! I've been using it for two years...yeesh!). Anyway, they put ultrasound on it for 10 minutes and then did this electro-ice therapy (basically iced my shoulder while jolting it with little electric shocks...that for 20 minutes. It helped a little, but not much. Then I got a call from the physical therapist a couple of days later that my insurance doesn't cover PT. So, I had to cancel any future appointments because I can't afford to pay for it out of pocket.

I had my follow-up appointment with my doctor today and informed him that my insurance doesn't cover PT. He was rather irritated (with the insurance, not me lol) and decided to send me to an orthopedist instead. It'll cost the insurance more, but whatev. Lol So, now I'm waiting on the orthopedist to call me to set up an appointment. *sigh*

Bummer drafty. Hope you get good news from the ortho!

My doctor said that if it wasn't for my riding and needing to actually use my shoulder for that, he'd just inject me and be done with it. But, he doesn't want me to lose any more riding time than is necessary. He understands the whole horse thing, as his daughter (who is about eight) has a horse that is boarded at the same barn we board at (they bought Blaze from the BO at the beginning of the summer, actually...he's an incredibly well-trained ex-ranch horse that we call "Blaze the Wonder Horse" because he literally does it all lol).

So sorry to hear that your shoulder is giving you such grief. At least the Doc understands, so that is a plus. Hope you get to feeling better soon!

Thanks, Cacowgirl. It's more annoying than anything else. I have very limited range of motion and most of the time it's difficult to saddle Aires on my own...especially now that he's getting so much taller (15.3hh at the withers and 16hh at the butt right now).

Crap! I was hoping I wouldn't have to, but it looks like I'm going to have to have the doc prescribe something for pain. A friend of mine went to hug me today, forgot about my shoulder, and squeezed just a little. I seriously was on the verge of passing out. My coworkers kind of froze and were like "Are you alright?" because I was literally doubled over with pain. I hate this.

In other news...I just have to say that I absolutely LOVE how woolly Aires is! He's a hairy beastly, but sooooo warm and soft! It's going to be a challenge de-hairing him in the spring, but it's worth it right now.

Not really anything to update...except that Aires is now EXTREMELY butt high. His butt is probably around 16.1hh. He's as terribly butt high now as he was when I got him (which is saying A LOT). Probably won't ride him until he levels out some.

Went to see him today after being away for a week. I've had a crazy schedule at work because we had two people quit at work in the last two weeks and then they moved one of our cashiers to the back, so we were REALLY short-handed. Aires gave me this look like "Really? Is it really you, Mom?" and came over and gave me a horsey hug. I cleaned his stall and while I was doing that, he was standing in one corner (he doesn't like the rake for some reason) and then all of a sudden did this little crow hop and then came trotting over to me like "Hi, Mom. Whatcha doin'?" He's such a GOOF! I love that he'll just stand there and let me dig my fingers into his hair and get warm. I forgot my jacket today (went after work, right before feeding time) and it was freezing, but he warmed me right up.
