He does the same thing as your mare, zurmdahl, toting it from the far corner of the stall to the bucket. My sis fed the horses this afternoon, I was away, and she said he was dipping again, she compared it to Robert Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond touching food to his chin, lol. She agrees that it's probably just a quirk. Her gelding is due for his shots in August, so when the vet comes out for that I'll have her take a peek in there (the Doc is also our horsey dentist) and see what she sees. If there are any changes, of course, I'll have her out sooner, but unless he exhibits more definite "I need floated" symptoms, or other changes, I think he can wait until early August. Thank you all so much!!!!!
