Are all drafts lazy-bones?!
Okay, so I don't know if it's just my draft horse, or if everyone's is like this, but he is SOOOOOOOOOO lazy!! When I turn him out, first thing he does is roll, then he just wanders aimlessly around the turnout. He's two, so I'm expecting some gallivanting and bucking and YEE-HAW! But, nope. He just meanders. I had an eight-year-old arab/saddlebred cross gelding who had more UMPH when turned out than Aires does and Dakota had bad hocks! Is the uber-laziness normal? I mean, he'll kind of crow hop every once in a while when I first turn him out if I "go after" him and throw my arms up/make "shhht" noises, but it's like one little crow hop and then he's done. I guess I should be glad that he's so level-headed, but geez! He can't even have a little fun on his own! lol
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
