An Acupuncturist in my Stable

You may recall my blog about Meindert, my wonderful Friesian, who needed a bone scan last February after falling on a trail.  Fortunately, the bone scan showed no sign of injury, but he was sore, none-the-less.  To help with his pain, Meindert has been receiving acupuncture treatments from Dr. Rosemary Ganser, a veterinarian who has been practicing acupuncture for twelve years.  A horse doesn't always take kindly to acupuncture needles, but Meindert seems rather relaxed, as you can tell from these photos and he also appears to be feeling better.

Betsy asked me to mention Courtney King-Dye, one of America's top dressage riders, who has been in a coma following a riding accident on March 4th.  Our thoughts are with Courtney and her family and we are sending healing energy her way.
