    I missed the sarcastic tone of the brilliant supermodel because I read it (and began my reply) right after your post about Reese being wonderful I thought Lex was agreeing not changing the subject Having read the additional page of comments that appeared in between that and my reply, it's all becoming clear now!

    Yeah, sometimes you need a damn Venn diagram to follow the discussions on this board.

    How dare you have a life! You mean you weren't hanging out at home watching "Law & Order: SVU" and repeat episodes of "The Big Bang Theory" on TBS like a "normal" person?!?

    OK, I was wondering if she even passed vet TECH school - she just doled out advice on another thread, yesterday, to someone who's horse had a seizure, to check the neck and get cervical imaging done. Even I know seizures (neuronal misfiring in the brain) have nothing to do with the spine and that bit of ignorance was pretty jaw dropping, as others on the thread echoed "yeah, check the neck". Fortunately the OP in that thread is taking the horse to her university vet clinic and NOT following the advice of Grataan or anyone else on the board, except to take the horse to her university vet clinic.

    She still has "dairy veterinarian" listed as her occupation on her profile.

    Less Venn Diagram, more flow chart and wine.

    I just got re-caught up and now I'm all confused, but it beats cleaning my house and doing laundry like I should be to fulfill my 'good little housewife' status.

    Except, trauma to the skull/cervical spine CAN cause neuro symptoms.

    Wow, finally caught up on my lunch break! Where to begin? So many topics to discuss on one thread...

    1. Grataan - too bad if true - always associated her username with "gratin" as in apple

    2. e.e. cummings - ick - i need to read "plain" English, cuz I'm speshul!

    3. I've met several COTHers IRL and they've all been wonderful - Wateryglen, in particular, loves to tell of the first time she met me - I was doing the nasty - not THAT nasty - (peeing - get your minds out of the gutter) - in the back of Hunters Rest's trailer before an ODH hunt.

    4. Lex, do you actually ride, or are you just a smart guy who knows where all the ladies are!

    Did I leave out a topic? Please continue this thread, cuz I don't have any plans tonight and I've got a nice bottle chilling in the wine fridge.

    I ride with friends and family but I do not partake in any of the horse sports at this point in my life.

    **SNORT** ... "ladies". No offense to you, I or any other CoTHers, but THIS is not the place I would hang out to find a nice (sane) lady friend On the other hand, for all I know, this place could be tame compared to internet dating sites....

    On a related train of thought there was a guy "friending" all the gals on the FB Sidesaddle Riders group. I guess he was turned on by all the whips and corsettes.

Please tell me that you've met the trainer, too? I tried PM'ing you all the dirt I have, but I assume you have to block PMs and such since you're our resident 100% certified choice man-beef.
    I have you both beat. I had the pleasure of watching Reese grow up from a precocious 10 year old to the super woman she is today. She is only 1 of 2 COTHER's I can positively say I know - although I'm sure there are a few out there who know who I am despite my super human efforts to keep my identity secret. ;D

    See U at X: Since we're in the same area please PM me about the vile COTHER so that I can avoid, avoid, avoid. I don't think we've met, so hopefully it is not me. I only know one local person that I consider totally vile - also concerning a 'forever home', but I don't know if she's on COTH.

    I'm so bored with this thread, since "Dr." G hasn't shown up. Maybe she was "on call" last night?

    Sorry. Couldn't help myself.

    Yes! Thank you for posting this. We had a great seminar on this very topic at my vets a couple of years back. Neuro symptoms can be caused by lots of things.


    Reese is clearly becoming the person to meet.

    I believe they were speaking more about being around horses in general and at this point, I don't have much of anything to do with the local horse scene and it's players because of the people I met, the things I saw, and what I experienced, though I pop up from time to time. Quite frankly, I saw far more bad than good and it made me realize that I should spend my time, money, and energy on things that can truly make me happy in life instead of just trying to squeeze blood from a stone. Hence, I got a dog.

    Timex, yes cervical problems can cause neuro symptoms, often severe, but not seizures. Identifying if something was a seizure not always straight forward. I do live out west, just not as OUT west as much of California. IRL I actually am a neurosurgeon, so will answer general questions, but never give medical advice online!

    YAY! About grad school...

    Boo that the Army decided to ship us to KY... although word through the grape vine is that Alabama is in our future. I'd prefer awesome horse people over Army installation.

    Well, if that happens... one of my very good friends lives in Birmingham and works at the university there. She'd probably be a great resource to help you get situated. Not a horse person, but just plain all-around freakin' awesome. And she can make a mean bodice/corset from scratch too! ;-)
