Ohhh where to start… where to start? Well… I guess I should start where I left off… well.. I said I would write about Bruce Jackson, Thank-you to everyone whose been patient enough waiting for it… You’ll understand in a bit why..
Meeting Bruce Jackson is something I will never forget in my life… I’m like any normal American when I say I like my personal space… Like any normal American 4-5 feet is comfortable with me… While other cultures prefer to hold hands while talking, or stand nose to nose in what seems for us a shouting match. Thats what they call normal… Mr. Jackson, walks right up to me, 6 inches from my face, and greets me with a loud “Hello! Bruce Jackson!” While vigorously shaking my hand. Big personality. We bring a horse out for him to check and treat. He proceeds to rub the horse down with his hands, pushing, proding, and pulling. He announces basically that this horse is just.. shot. Let me rewind a little bit and say this horse was gorgeous… but a little bit on the pistachio side.. I say that.. because you have your regular peanuts… you know.. the common nut, always predictable.. Then you have a pistachio.. most of them look really good.. but some taste so bad, you almost don’t want anymore after eating it.. Yep. Here he was… Gorgeous, a sweetheart.. but buck as crazy sometimes.. Bruce announced that his bladder, liver, lungs, pancrease, rear axel, and pistons were shot.. And that the new prospect owner should pass over this bad nut. Rewind Again; Bruce had looked over a horse at one point and said “Retire him.” Something was wrong with his hips, and Bruce said, “If you jump him, like you plan to do. You’re going to break his pelvis, and be out a horse.” Well.. said owner blew off Bruces warning, and continued to jump him anyways. Not long after, said prediction came true, and the horse had to be put down on the jump course… Sad, but from my understanding. True. Fast Forward to the present… Brue did acupuncture, chiropractic work, and kinetic (correct usage?) work on some of the horses.. And all of them improved when we followed the prescribed treatment.
On to my most recent news… I’m back in Michigan. *boo* Unfortunately while working with a horse who was put under my training, under someone elses training I took a fall and now have three transverse process fractures.. My L2 L3 and L4. And, I just went to the doctors two days ago now. They’ve decided to bake me like a potato and do an MRI now bc they think I may have more fractures than they initially thought.
Bed rest here I come! It sucks… honestly. But it looks like I’ll be updating this with a little more frequency…
