  • denied medicaid now what?

    So I know this isnt the best place to find answers but I'm out of options. I found out I was pregnant about 3.5 months ago and applied for medicaid. I am also considered high risk due to a blood clottimg problem so i have to take aspirin to prevent clots and i had 4 miscarriages last year.Today I got a notice my medicaid was denied due to income too high. Our income filed adjoining was 45000 but in reality it was only 30000 after he put down since he is self employed for business he paid out 29000 dollars we also had to pay 5400 in taxes. We also have living expenses like crazy that we literally live paycheck to paycheck. I have insurance through my parents but it doesn't cover dependant pregnancies.So I thought it would help with their decision but I guess not. So now I dont know what to do because the insurance open enrollment period has ended and most insurances wont cover a already pregnant pregnancy, so I'm out of options there. Does anyone know what I could possibly do?

    thanks you

  • ok saddlebred horse trainers tips on collection high head set?

    So my mare has improved over summer but she still isn't setting her head correctly she sets it way too low. I was going to send her to a trainer for couple months but the one I was going to send her to is full. And any others are like 3 hrs away which is too far. So I was wondering what exercises do you do to train their head carriage? Just a lot of line driving and bitting up? Her teeth were just done in august by a horse dentist so its not that. And when I have line driven her it seems to pull on her mouth too much. I have bitted her up and free lunged her in the round pen would that help?

  • help what to do about my dogs mange?

    Ok so my dog was diagnosed with demodectic mange a yr ago so she was on ivermectin for 7 month's she was doing good so she was taken off of it in july and was doing really good but now its back with a vengence. My vet said she probably has to be on ivermectin her entire life due to poor immune system. Its soo expensive so I was hoping to get her in immune system vitamins since she almost 2 so she might have a chance to build it up before its fully developed. I had seen these organic immune booster vitamins in an article by dr something it was made with herbs too. can't remember the rest of it and now I can't find it anywhere so I was wondering if anyone knew what it might be. Also was wondering if anyone knew any other vitamins or herbs that would help her out.

  • How do you professional saddlebred trainers achieve great headsets on saddlebreds?


    I was just wondering what do you trainers use when achieving collection do you just line drive or do you use martingales a lot?Do you just constantly line drive or draw reins? I'm just wondering I sent my saddlebred to a trainer and I got her back now she has knotts in her neck. My trainer said its just from training but idk I tslked to some others and they said never had that issue. So I need to correct it cuz she still doesn't fully collect now either. She is 4 and I love her to death and I just want to be able to do some exercises and stuff to collect. She collects at the walk real good but not at the trot. Please give me some tips

  • How do you trainers feel about caveletti for saddlseat training?


    So I was wondering what are aome opinions of uaing caveletti ti create more action in saddlebreds to build the muscle? I have a saddlebred 4 yr old and she breaks level with just plain shoes on although her chest could use some muscle building. How do you feel about using the caveletti to help create a little more action and muscle building. I know of surgical tubing but don't want my mare to concentrate on her friend end as she is just figuring out how do make herself round and more under herself. Thanks, also off subject but how do you edit the questions after you post them? My computer doesn't seem to have a button to. Thanks

She just needs more collection neck conditioning just looking for ideas thanks
