Horse does not want to put his head down
I've just got a bit of a concern. Tonight when I put my horse back in his stable after riding and gave him his feed bucket (on the floor), he just stood there looking at me.
Thinking he had not seen it (yea, right), I picked it up and put it in front of his nose and he started eating, as soon as I put it back on the floor, he just stood there looking miserable.
As I said in my introduction, he has spavins in both his hocks, but he has never found it painful to put his head down before. He looked like he was trying but then gave up. I stood there till he had had his dinner from my hand basically, and made sure he could get to his haynet.
I'm not sure what it could be, and I'm worried he won't be able to reach his water bucket.
Does anyone have any ideas? Please help :(
