I'm a big believer in getting rid of little problems before they cost me big money.

Probably why I don't have a wife and kids.

I read a study a while back where some dairies have massage therapist work on the cows and they produced more milk. Have no idea if it was a "scientific study". Most of my girls will immediately drop their head/neck in a passive/submissive position when I rub & scratch down their neck & on their shoulders. They love it!

Mine respond the same way. It is hilarious how some will wave their head side to side and stick out their tongue and move their lips like they are pantomiming.

Well, we are too, for the most part. Let's just call this an experiment. If she goes on to have a happy productive life, it will be money well spent, and I'll do it again. If she comes upmlame again, well, live and learn, and she'll go to town.
