I'm back, yet again, 3rd time is the charm right? I have quite a bit to lose but all the time in the world to do it in. I've been back on the wagon 2 weeks now and plan to stay the distance this time!

    okay, 3 weeks in, 3.7# down! So far so good! Anyone else back at it after a break? Im just starting to get to woek my horse again now, after building a new house, a rough winter and a spring so rainy I couldn't ride at all! I've lunged horse 3x so far just to get him used to the idea again, and if this heatwave breaks I'll ride this week!

    Welcome back! I've been on MFP all along, but my horse has been getting lots of breaks. I rode her yesterday and I don't know if she's a in season or if it was the heat or if she's got a new pain, but she was NOT having it! I'm giving her today off, but I plan to ride again tomorrow and if she's still being a turd I guess I'm calling the vet again.

    Well, my girl is having an ulcer flare-up, so it's two weeks of Ulcerguard paste and workouts are limited to walks. :disappointed:

    oh no! ulcers are the worst. My new horse is ulcer prone but fortunately only really related to travel, general working stress doesn't seem to bother him much. Ulcergard is so expensive!

    Unfortunately, my horse is a bit of a hothouse orchid. Who knew that an Arabian mare named "Princess" would be high maintenance? :lol:

    No, no i don't see any way you could have predicted that. It's just way out of left field!

    LOL!! No, she's a bay, but maybe she dyes her mane and tail...? :lol:

    She is actually very sweet and cuddly. She's just high maintenance. Otoh, we are close in equivalent age, so I can relate. She needs injections in her hocks? Well, I need them in my shoulders, so fair enough! She's got a high-low foot condition? Well, I've got a Greek foot a with high arches and all the accompanying pain, so I can relate to that, too!
