Phew…I used what was supposed to be all natural, “safe” shampoo on Tara and the result was 2 days of headaches, asthma attacks, ringing ears and fibromyalgia. I have serious doubts about their claim that the apple fragrance is natural, as I re-bathed Tara with AFM Super Clean (safe soap/degreaser) and she still reeks. It seems to be indelible. I am getting hit even through my respirator. Poor Tara must stay outside and is not happy, even though Bear is with her and there are doghouses. It was pretty incapacitating, but I managed to care for everyone today. With MCS, even something like a bottle of shampoo can be life threatening.

Then at PM feeding, I was hit with a heavy downpour and sky to ground lightening strikes all around us. As I went out with the cart full of hay, lightening struck and all the horses ran away. The show must go on, I can’t wimp out when horses and burros need to eat. I was dripping wet, but it is still warm here. Of course, 10 minutes later the rain stopped, but by then it was dark. I could not postpone feeding if I wanted to see what I was doing down there.

Today was “bone day” so after all the dogs had bones, I washed all their bedding and double washed the outside bedding due to Tara sleeping on it with her “apple essence”. I am praying it will dissipate soon so she can come inside. I am seriously considering getting the shampoo analyzed to see what exactly it contains. I met a chemical engineer on Linkedin who may be able to do it. It is the most toxic thing I have encountered in a few years.

It took 2 tries to upload video to Youtube. It stalled 3 hours into the first try. That tied up the computer most of the day, as our internet can’t handle too much at once.

So here is video from Oct. 1 and 2. I was feeling better and in a better mood than I am tonight. I hope to be back to normal soon!

We brought in half as much as we had to spent last month and our hay drive is off to a slow start. Please share our website and/or Stay Classy page, as we only have enough hay to get through this month.
If you are on Twitter or Facebook, you can copy and post this message and link. We cannot survive without donations. Thank you!
