ALICIA Bees are out in force collecting food for winter , you will not be bothered in cold weather , I'm guessing at the date , forgot to look !! Keep the horse . "your Doctor is wrong" . Best therapy you could have and YES You will ride again because you have the desire . Just ride early in the AM away from the Bee's , Enjoy your country Home and If you find the nest , have them killed or removed !!! Give me a HEY' ... firstname.lastname@example.org . respectfully , ALANb. P/S they sound like "killer Bees" very aggresive !!! You may find a nest in the pasture grass (not unusual) and the horse stepped on them ....... AB.
