So Lola has put on a lot of weight since the grass came back! I am wondering is it ok or could she do with some more on?
So this is her when I got her last september..
February.When she was stuck in a stable on and off and lost looads of weight
3 weeks ago
And today..Does it look like she has any muscle at all?
Everyone who sees her now does not recognize her...They are saying she looks like a different horse! Obviously she is getting a lot lighter and her winter coat is just about gone. There is just a little more hair on her belly and legs that need to go. Otherwise she is nice and sleek..Just today someone said she had not seen her in ages and she looks so good!! Now I gotta keep her looking good XD Oh and that fat is all from grass. She has stopped eating hay and I stopped giving her hard feed about a month ago.
Also we went on our second trek today with just one other horse. She was ok until she seen some other horses cantering and jumping. She threatened to rear so many times and kept pulling her head down again?! I know she was just annoyed with those other horses running around her but I am not ready to go faster than a trot on a trek yet and she should stand if I want her too! But the problem is how do I do it? I was so scared when she nearly reared. I really cannot handle rearers. Last time I horse reared with me I never got on another one for a whole year. She pretty much just pulled her head right up and pushed onto her back legs. But she did not lift her front legs up. I kept her going and then we went back home. And she behaved perfect again..
And one more thing...She is still coughing when we trot! I mena like she has been exercised a lot this past month so she is hardly still unfit?! Or could it be something else? She is like pulling me out of the saddle every time she coughs..
