I had Amber out in the Indoor 2 nights ago, just playing with her, and I noticed that she was very intent on eating the sandy footing in the ring, something I have never seen her do before. And Last night she was the same way. I know it only a little bit, but I still worry about sand colic. I just can't figure out this new habit. Any ideas? Do you think she needs more salts/minerals in her diet? Could it be a boredom thing? She was inside for 3 days because I had to wash her blanket and she's clipped and then yesterday it was so gross outside no one went out.
I'm just worried, cause it's something she's never done before. Usually when im free lunging her or we're playing in the indoor she is very intent on me, or kicking up her heels and running around, but the last 2 times all she wanted to do was eat the sand! Any input would be great! Thanks!
