    Default Happy Dance!

    I just have to share with the world... my pony who was diagnosed with Cushings last June and has been on Pergolide ever since, IS SHEDDING!!! Really shedding! Great big gobs of hair in my currycomb shedding! And he's put on a ton of muscle and is feeling fiiiiine!

    WOOHOO! I LOVE SHEDDING SEASON!

    Congratulations! Most of us are not quite as thrilled with shedding, but in your case, I would be over the moon. When it works, Pergolide can really make a huge difference. Glad your boy has improved so dramatically.

    That's fantastic!!!!

    Now remember...do not wear lip gloss of chapstick near the pony until it's done shedding.
    You jump in the saddle,
    Hold onto the bridle!
    Jump in the line!

    hahaha.. He started really blowing his coat yesterday, and me not expecting more than a few hairs here and there wore lip balm AND a fleece jacket.
