A couple months ago my shoulder started hurting.  I'm not sure what I did, maybe slept on it wrong?  Anyway, it got progressively worse to the point where it was waking me up in the night.  So the barn chores were set aside and the poop piled up.

So I thought perhaps there was a 4-H group that needed to perform some community service, and make a little money for their group.  I saw a posted from Rosamarie Acevedo from Tri-City Barrel Racing Club that her kids' 4-H group was doing a carwash.  I thought PERFECT!!  I contacted Rosamarie and asked if the group was interested.  Lucky for me, they were! 

The kids came out this morning to beat the heat, and cleaned my pens!  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Done working, now supervising.

Does it ache deep inside your shoulder, and does it spike when you lift your arm? If so, it might be your rotator cuff. Don't ignore it if it's hurting you that badly, it can be treated without surgery if you get to it early. When mine was injured I was able to get back to normal with physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medication.

It hurts mostly on top, where the scapula and collarbone meet.

Could be a pinched nerve. Regardless, icing it will help reduce inflammation no mater what the cause is. Hope you're feeling better soon!
