    Agreed, but in this statement Fluke implied the woman did not go because she specifically "thought" the examination would not be covered by insurance.

    Thanks for the feedback regarding spot-on products. Tried generic Freedom and the effect is amazing. Plus, so far, no reaction from a very sensitive skin horse.

    My apology if my facts are off, but if JP is riding a different horse or even the same horse who is now several years older those are other factors.

    Kudos to you OP for your positive outlook. RA runs in my family and it just destroys people, especially the unending pain. Add to that the restricted movement due to joint damage.
