Sandy is my daughter’s pony, added to our herd in October on the same day as Tazzy. I purchased Sandy sight unseen from an online friend because I liked what I saw in the photos and because she is an Our Sir Vancelot mare. She is not the prettiest mare, but she has such a sweet, affectionate and gentle nature that she has quickly become a much loved member of the family.

Sandy had been ridden before I got her, although is still very green. Groundwork and a couple of long trail rides around the property has improved her responsiveness and lightness tremendously, and she quickly learnt in our first ridden session that lots of one rein stops will stop jig-jogging and now has a lovely forward walk on the buckle:) On our second ride yesterday we worked on her confidence with strange things and places, during which time we also (unintentionally) practised our collected trotting and some lovely canter pirouettes;) Sandy is now responding to voice and leg/seat cues for halt/walk/trot and is starting to realise that leaves and honky nuts hitting my helmet (an intentional de-sensitising excercise) is not a horse eating monster on her back. In between our two ridden sessions, Sandy has also behaved beautifully in her role as lead line pony, and every moment that I spend with her re-assures me that she has the steady and calm personality to proceed to be Brit’s ‘first ridden’ pony in a couple of months time.

Serenade with satirical whistle

Older men with diabetes mellitus, but also severely overweight men, may develop secondary hypogonadism. "The core symptom of low testosterone levels is usually decreased libido," Dr. Cornelia Jaursch-Hancke from the German Clinic for Diagnostics, Sydney, at the conference in Melbourne. Various additional symptoms such as osteoporosis, anemia, erectile dysfunction, decreasing muscle strength and mass, but also diminishing vitality and depression can be added. In secondary hypogonadism the function of the hypothalamus or pituitary is impaired so that the Leydig cells of the testicle no longer form testosterone or no testosterone due to lack of stimulation. Typically, the gonadotropins LH and FSH in the serum are still normal to low. This also applies to patients with type 2 diabetes, of which about 25 to 50 percent are affected, the endocrinologist reported. An increasing problem is also MOSH, the "male obesity associated secondary hypogonadism". As a cause, she described the visceral fetal cells, which are highly active endocrinically and produce mediators, which promote, inter alia, insulin resistance, inflammatory processes and dyslipidemia and stimulate estradiol production. In sum, the hypothalamic-pituitary axis is inhibited. Continue reading...
