    That isn't that hard to diagnose and presents a bit differently than EPM. If the vet was a good sports medicine vet, I would be very surprised that she was going down the EPM path on a shivers horse.

    And when it crushes a barn worker and she sues you... this will be the most expensive free horse you ever have.
  3. Nice, just wait and see if the horse becomes so...

    Nice, just wait and see if the horse becomes so ill it can't stand or crushes someone. I love the "wait and see" approach to horse with serious neuro conditions!
  4. Oh, the blood test was unequivocal for EPM? That...

    Oh, the blood test was unequivocal for EPM? That just means exposed. Like every horse on the East Coast, practically. Did they do a spinal tap? With the neuro symptoms you describe, whether EPM or...
  5. I got you. If the neurological tests were...

    I got you. If the neurological tests were unequivocal-- the vet was saying it was CLEAR the horse had neurological symptoms.

    Run, don't walk from this horse!

    Just fire roasted on the grill, they're delicious in salads and mixed into dishes. I love them done like poached pears with white wine and a dollop of vanilla ice cream. Mmm...

    I had them a lot when I was younger. I thought sitting in a warm bath helped me feel a little better. When I was sick, I'd be in the bath basically all day long. Ugh, you have my sympathy!

    I had...

    Oh horrible. Horrible horrible. In high school I helped a then-boyfriend through a pilonidal cyst removal. Horrible. And DISGUSTING. I hope you feel better soon!!!

    Are you detail oriented? Do you like math? Auditing/compliance (all different kinds, in Philly medical is hot) is a great way to go if you are.
  10. I tend to agree SF, negative in quotes for sure.

    I tend to agree SF, negative in quotes for sure.
  11. Linny, I'm with you that it would have been...

    Linny, I'm with you that it would have been better politics/manners to wait until after the show was over to comment. But that's not really the issue. The issue is whether any USEF member can be...

    I love those microplush blankets too. I have ones from Bed Bath and Beyond and Target. I love love love them!

    I think The Road is the great American novel. It is... however... grim. And I completely understand why it's not on everyone's beach reading list ;)

    Who is the other person getting disciplined from the thread? Don?
  15. Why do people have to be such @ssholes on eBay?

    Just a vent. Pure vent. Nothing more or less.

    I had half chaps for sale on eBay. Starting bid $65 and BIN $85. eBay makes you set the BIN 30% above the opening bid. I had someone message me and...

    I suppose they could also weed through this thread/board and apply some censures. I suppose lots of us have at some point or another been critical of the "sport."
  17. I was responding to several posters who pointed...

    I was responding to several posters who pointed out that employers often restrict employee social media (e.g. post 27, 37). This isn't really akin. That's all I'm saying.

    And now I see the...
  18. This is all far afield of the point I was making...

    This is all far afield of the point I was making vis-a-vis a traditional employee/employer relationship being different. JT wasn't censured for failing to fulfill his judging role. He was censured...

    It matters for the purposes of whether JT could have anything like an employee relationship with the censuring body. If he was hired by X, said something negative about X, and then was disciplined by...

    USHJA has its own set of rules. http://www.ushja.org/content/documents/Bylaws_2014-0514.pdf



    The USHJA made a choice not to have hearings and discipline members. Their call. Plenty of...

    My favorite part of all of this is that the USEF couldn't scrape together some sportmanship reason or other to somehow punish in SOME way some really distressing behavior. but they certainly found...

    CM, I don't think you're correct about their relationship. The USEF and USHJA are two separate organizations. In 2004 they came to an agreement about working together on certain projects, but they...
  23. I don't know that it's ever been used in that way...

    I don't know that it's ever been used in that way before. I have seen it cited against members, as I mentioned, who bounce checks or mouth off at officials. But I doubt it's ever been used the way it...
  24. The USEF and USHJA may work in tandem at times...

    The USEF and USHJA may work in tandem at times but they are not one and the same. The USEF wasn't running the show or hiring judges, to my knowledge. And I am sure judges are hired as contractors,...

    Except this isn't an employee/employer situation. JT isn't, to my knowledge, an employee of the USEF. At the show he was hired, presumably as an independent contractor, by whoever was running the...
