    I drive my elderly pony, and he can stop and poop when he likes. He doesn't do it often in harness, but when he does, he gets to stop. I figure he's earned it, still hauling my butt around.

    My gray pony is bright, solid white in the winter (except for the mud spots) and flea bitten in summer. I love watching the changes in his coat each season.

    When I got him 13 years ago, he had...

    I've talked about my horses in other threads, but I'll contribute here, too, just because they are/were so cool.

    Husband and daughter and I adopted two horses that were bought at an auction from...

    If you can't take DMARDs and biologics, what does your doctor say about potential joint damage? To me that is the scariest part of the equation. I have minimal joint damage because I got started on...

    Found out today that what looks like new cellulitis is not bacterial. Yippee! Doc said my skin is being stretched too much by edema. Been trying to get rid of it, but all the other attempts have...

    I've been driving for twelve years, using easy entry carts. Like Cayuse, I have RA. I haven't had much trouble with the motion bothering my joints, but I think a two-wheeled vehicle might be tough...

    Thanks for the supportive messages!

    The good news is that I continue to drive my sweet pony. The bad news is that the cellulitis is doing an encore, which is frustrating and scary. One day at...

    amastrike, that is interesting. I didn't know the fee schedule would be lower. And I'm not too worried about the doctors' fees--it was more the surgical center, multiple ultrasounds and X-rays that...

    Lady Eboshi and bambam, it gets a little more complicated when the injury being treated happened at work. Then, guess what, they do own you to a certain extent.

    If you don't take medical...

    You guys are making me feel almost normal, not being the only one who does this stuff. Thanks for that.

    I have to laugh at a conversation I had with the doctor who wanted to send me to the shrink...

    I have a very high pain threshold after 18 years of rheumatoid arthritis. I was seriously overhorsed in late '99 and kept ending up in the ER for this and that. But I kept riding. It finally got...

    A very positive update--I have taken Salt out for two drives recently. He is such a good boy, and husband helped me groom and harness, so it was very do-able and enjoyable.

    I think I can handle...

    We get plenty of snow, but it never sticks around long enough for a sleigh. Even several feet will disappear fairly fast. And on the road, it turns quickly to ice--not good for pony!

    Surgery was for hematoma. No sleigh here, snow doesn't stick around long enough, even though it's Colorado.

    Further update--had unexpected surgery on leg yesterday after what I thought was going to be a routine followup visit. Ugh. Now I can't get to the back yard even to see my pony. Hopefully that...

    Thanks, Cayuse. I responded to your PM, and I'll put an update here as well.

    The damage from the fall triggered cellulitis, which I wouldn't wish on anyone. I am on antibiotics but they don't...

    Seems to me that daughter and I delivered some Girl Scout cookies by pony cart one year--a fun way to do it

    Lauruffian, you are in So Cal, right? I lived in the San Fernando Valley from age 10...

    Salt is perfectly happy not to be earning his living, but I think he would just like more attention.

    P.S. N, it's been so funny--Salt has been hanging out just outside the sliding glass door next to the desk where I'm sitting, keeping me company. He is such a cool pony.

    Zu Zu, thanks so much for your optimism. I can sure use it.

    2BayPonies, I know how much you understand, and I very much appreciate your words. Love to you too. I think you need to come to...
  21. So frustrated--no driving for me, don't know for how long

    The last week of August, I was heading into the building where my office is and fell hard. I think I stepped on a rock or broken piece of concrete. I thought I'd broken my leg at first, and the...

    What a great post, Lauruffian! So glad to hear how things are going.

    Now I'm on the completely disabled list, on house arrest. I'll start a new thread for that mess.

    I gave up riding 15 years ago, and still miss it. I am now at the point with my aging pony that we are lucky to get out driving once a week. And the worst of it is that my husband feels he is just...
