I've been reading this journal with fascination for a while now. It really is a marvelous story. I'm glad Snickers is doing so well. PSSM is... annoying, to say the least, but it can be manged and overcome. As you have demonstrated.
It's interesting how Snickers has gone through all the stages that Baby Girl did. You've handled them much better than I handled them, however. You're so patient and understanding with your mare. I was mad at mine. Mad at something she wouldn't help. Silly, eh? You and Snicker have been coming through with so much grace.
Best of luck! I hope for continued improvement.
This horse is so worth fighting for. She can't help herself and I really get the feeling she gives everything her all. That makes it easier and very worthwhile.
Don't beat yourself up....just do what you can do. If you run into a dead end, just start over. It's so much more than a lot of people would do.
