  1. Do doctors do there job?Kind of a vent

    OK I went to the doctor again tonight. I'm going to do get an MRI done soon and then we will go from there. We have no ideal whats going to happen. I can't do Acupuncture I almost past out when someone gives me a shot, that is one of my fears is shots(needles), but then I'm find with horse needles, this if I know it is for a human, give if it isn't for me. My doctor has said she thinks I migth have torn a liagment or something, that didn't heal right. So the MRI will give us more of an ideal. This is the first doctor who has been willing to try to find out the problem also, my mom said she was not pleased with the leg doctor she send me to, and if she sends me back it most be a driffernt doctor. I do remember one time, I was being a smart kid to my mom, we was trail riding, She only rode half I did, so I led, becuase she didn't want to, there was many other people who could have led, like 11 others, I was on a 12 hand tall pony, and we came to the creek we always crossed, and it washed out, my pony had a habit of laying down in creeks, well, the creek was almost to the middle of my pony's back, so my dad jumped off his horse and pulled me off, he though she laid down, we were beside the bank and my leg got caught in a root, by my dad pulled me and it the root broke, that was when I was 9 or 10. THen me being the smart mouth I'm I yelled at him, becuase I could do trained, and he let my pony, when I kept her there to try teaching her not to lay down in creeks.Other than that I don't remember any damage done to my leg. I knwo I have met with lots of doctors, most said they didn't know(given some said I make it up), and would only look at my foot for 15 mintues or so. If I missed questiosn let my know and I can awnser them, oh it might hurt a night friday, then in the morning the next thursday, then in mid-day the sunday and then not hurt for 2 weeks, no pattern at all. I'm this hoping what ever it is is solve, and I won't need a cast or surgey, becuase I have a horse I'm breaking, one coming for me to break soon and one in October for me to break.
  2. Do doctors do there job?Kind of a vent

    I?m going to the doctor tomorrow, again. I don?t know what it is the only symptom I have is pain, it hurts so bad I can?t explain anything that hurts that bad. I know doctors do there job, I guess I should change the title, but when I?m in this pain it seems, not. I don?t know what type of doctors I have seen about it, I know my mom has took me to many different types, because I would cry my self to sleep because of the pain, when I was younger. I do know I had a bad ear infection for one year until my doctors noticed it got to the point I could hear out of that ear for ever. Riding is bad on my foot to, I have to carry Advil in my saddlebags if I ride more than 3 hours, in pictures you might noticed, my left leg is always in the right position because of the pain. The more often I ride the less it hurts riding, but walking kills it, jumping on my trampoline, running with my dogs, gym class, and this plain playing around kids. Trust me I know doctors do there job, or my mom would be in a wheelchair after a car wreak, and have no tongue, my uncle would walk(both hips and both knees replace), he wouldn?t have a hand, my dad could be able to left more than 40 pounds due to not lifting with his knees at a young age. My family knows how important it is to lift with your knees and not your back.
  3. Do doctors do there job?Kind of a vent

    Will I want to go to a older leg doctor, that has tons of experince, that can at least ease the pain maybe, maybe the one that got my mom walking after everyother one said she never woudl walk again, but we don't know if he is still working becuase my mom said he might be pretty old. This isn't the only reason I believe doctors don't do there job. But the main, I know they do there job, but whenI'm in this pain it seems other wise. Saying I have saw over 25 doctors over this.
  4. Do doctors do there job? I?m saying this as I?m sitting here in pain, because no doctor can figure out why I have this leg pain. I had it since I was about 8 and I?m in high school now. It comes and goes, and is my ankle, but is starting to move up now. I have limped around today since about 7 or 8. I had to take care of the animals in this time to. Every doctor I go to says they don?t know why. The last time I went, was because I needed up taking 3 to 5 Advil everyday, and didn?t like that ideal. So I get put on pain pills and was said to wrap my foot, I will have to for the rest of my leg probably. Now, 100mg pain bill too. I?m still in pain, and even foot doctors don?t know. They say I walk on the edge of my foot and not the bottom, at least the last doctor did, after nothing else was found. After typing this I?m still in pain and about to try to sleep it off, because I want to groom the horse Tomorrow, but don?t think it will be wise to be limping about them and scaring them, other than one of them understands and will let me grasp her mane, and she will this kind of pull me if I ask her too. See why it seems like to me doctors don?t do there job? Sorry if you are a doctor. AND yes, I have been to many foot doctors. Yes, this was kind of a vent. I fell sorry for who read this.
  5. what to you teach your horse?

    Well, she does enjoy the trails, but with barrel racing, she seems to like going fast sometimes, I do plan on getting rid of her when the price of horses go up, unless someone offers me enough to get me the horse I want, an Appaloosa.

  7. fleas

    I will try some of your hints. BUt I'm going have to wait a couple weeks to get anything, until then I'm going to bath her and keep clean my floors. Is it true if you put a night light close to the cround and water around it, they will jump in the water to get to the light. That something I have heard but haven't tried.
  8. Goats and horses......goat questions?

    I'm wanting to get an goat again. My last one died 3 years ago, almost. He was hnad rise than we got him. My dad come home from work one day, we a goat in the passner seat of his pick-up. WE turned him lose with the horses, and yes he had horns, they were curled under, we never had a problem with him hurting the horses. He would stay with the horses, if the horses were in the barn he was, if they we eating in the back left of the pasture he was. If the horses were running him was. We this had one run it. He died because a neighboor's half woof, half German Sherpard, when around and killed almost 100 animals, over 20 goats the others were cats, chickens, rabbits and even a dog. For about a month after we could tell, the horses knew what happen. Matter of Fact we found our horses standing over him and we had to lock them in barn this to bury him. THen they knew where we burnied him nad would stand over it. MY gelding still sometimes stands in that spot, don't know if he remembers ir what. We also have Coytoes around us and a dog killed ours.
  9. At what age should children handle things themselves?

    Do their own laundry? Should be able to by about 10 years old, at least somewhat. My sister had her kids doing Landry at like 6 years old, she didn?t what they could reach. I started about 10. I?m in high school now and I do most of our laundry, other than my mom folds, I can but she says I don?t have to. Make their own meals? Again I have been since about 7 or 8, my sister kids at 6 or7, yes a little young. I can now almost kid a whole diner, I might have to read the box, I do cook lunch a lot. I bake cookies often too. Tell you the truth I hate cooking. Buy their own gas/car insurance? I don?t drive yet so I don?t have to worry about this. When I do drive I will pay the gas, my parents might help a tiny bit and I think my parents will put me on their insurance. With that being stay, I had to pay the gas to get my horse, I didn?t have to pay gas, until they found out they would give her to me, so the money I was planning on paying her with when to gas. It costed about 75 bucks. Pay their own car payments/rent/utilities? When ever they have them, I don?t yet, because I don?t have them yet. Apartment shop? When ever they move out, they may have parents along to help if they are unsure, but they should do 99.9% of it. Make doctor/dentist appointments? I think about 14 you could. With that being said I don?t think my parents will let me until I?m 18.
  10. what to you teach your horse?

    I have trained two of my horses for barrel racing last year. They now the basic I know I left things out. I now have another horse I?m breaking. She would be on barrels until late this fall or next spring, but I?m going to go ahead and teach her small things. For example Side Pass and other things. The only problem is I?m not for sure what to teach her in things like that. I have been a trail rider and my trail horses were never taught that. I what to teach things like that to even my trail horses. I know things like turn on her behind, and on her forehand, side pass, neck reins, stopping on a dime, going all speeds and getting her used to the noises, but what else to you teach your horse before barrel training. This to have a good horse for pleasure want to you teach him. I know you teach them every ride, and I know the basic, but what else to you teach your horse, even this for trails, she has already been trail riding two times.

  12. fleas

    I have a problem with fleas. I have an house dog, who gets ate up by them. We try use best, we bath her, we use the stuff that helps keeps fleas off, like every name brand, but Front Line. She is half poodle and half terrier, so she has long hair, I keep it cut most of the time, I clean the floor, I have had her dipped, the house bombed. Nothing seems to help, she is also very old, and lays around a lot, we keep her in a small piece of our yard too,(at least we have before). I know nothing too keep them off for more than a day and then they are back in tons. Our outside dogs gets fleas to, but not this many. We try everything, our vet has even put stuff on her to kill them off and keep them off while we bomb the house the small day, and put some flea killer thing in our yard, where she would be allow at and it doesn?t help what to you do. She is our baby I have had her for many many years. She was a stay before we got her. She is the most behaved dog every, she this has bad fleas, how do you kill the fleas and you and the dog live happy. Here is the little girl, she gets a hair-cut by me about every two weeks, or she gets so hold in the summer, this was like a week before the hair cut.
  13. Riding two year olds

    I?m also breaking an 2 year old, and she is also an April Baby. I have rode her 6 times, she is doing wonderful, I trot and walk or will lope her soon and this fall she might go in to barrel training. I have rode her in the trails for about 6 hours. Fourth of July she will be ridden for 11 hours in the trails. For the past 50 years or more I know my family (not me I?m not that old) have trained horses as soon as they turned two like that day. Then this horses are ridden hard like 11 hours after there first 10 rides or so. All these horses have been trail horses all different breeds and most was still ridden in there late 20s. Matter of fact one of these horses this died last month at age 35, plus was still ridden off and on, still went on a small trail ride in 2006. So I known most horses can handle this, and have saw them last, but also this are horses who were almost never stalled and in a pasture, running loose since birth. They also only got vet cared when something happen wrong. This is how I plan to raise my horses for years to be, unless your prove other wise, this is bad. So I don?t think it?s a bad thing to wait until 3, I also think it?s ok to ride at 2 and maybe a week or two before they turn two.
