So, since the new barn doesn't have an indoor, he hasn't been worked much in the last week. Monday was the best day, since it got above freezing and the ring was ridable. It was my first time riding Danny outside and he was a fireball! He's usually completely lazy and dead but Monday he was ready to take off. He was almost uncontrollable at the trot and wanted to run the entire time, even let out a little buck as we trotted through a giant puddle. I spent most of the time walking, or doing transitions hoping to get his attention. Tues the ring was frozen again, but last night I was able to lunge him. He spent the whole time bucking and trying to gallop. I've been over to see him at least once a day, even if we just groom and can't get out in the ring. Even on the crossties he's been wired. Of course I realize that this is a huge change for him this week, the snow is out of control, the round pen isn't big enough for him to get his energy out during the day, he's on a new feeding program, new people handling him, new surroundings, new horses, and I'm working him outside for the very first time. I'm just worried about him being so high strung since he's typically so mellow and affectionate and lazy! I hate to think he's scared or unhappy and of course I always worry about him colicing when he's under stress.
