Thanks guys, sorry to hear that RA has affected your family apachiedragon. Hope they are doing well.
I didn't give much info on what I've been doing these past few years that may come up in this journal. I'm trying to become a horse trainer. An insane and crazy minded feat for someone in my condition, but its what I want to do, and I can't think of anything else that would make me truly happy. I'm hopefully going to college in the fall, I've been accepted into an equine business managment program, and may be switching to the horse training and managment program her soon. In the mean time I'm working on my reputation and my skills with the horses and plan to continue doing this. Araya is a now 11 month old QH sorrel filly, she will be 1 year old on April 13th. March 13
Visited the horse rescue and bugged the owner about my letter of Recommendation I need for a RA scholarship due on friday. Of course he didn't have it printed out, which irritated me after I had to write the letter for him. Nonetheless I have to find some time this week to annoy him further, which i hate doing. But it was nice to go there today and see at least someone seemed excited to see me. That made me happy for awhile. Talked to a guy there about his horse Santana, who is a lovely bay paint. He had/has some issues but the guy is doing wonderful work with him. I found it odd when he said Santana didn't like girls yet he didn't even react when I came over and stroked his neck. In fact he started licking and chewing and cocked a leg, especially when I talked to him. When another girl came over his head came up and he seemed to be nervous. I find it funny that this horse will come up to me in the pasture with the others aswell. Not to mention the others, I seem to be a magnet for them as they all seem to enjoy standing near me or following me around, even the skittish nervous ones we have. I didn't get to work with any of them this weekend but I hope I'll get the chance to the weekend after next. I need to find some time to see Raya (Araya) over spring break as well. Hate the fact she's so far away.
My JRA is alright, the new med is at least taking some of the edge off, I have another infusion on the 24th of this month. Still flaring badly enough to the point where I will grit my teeth in pain and limp around. But strangely there is little to no noticeable swelling. May have to ask the doc to up my dose.
Heres some pics of my girl at about 10 months (She loves eating and playing with tumbleweeds, not sure why):
