I just feel I'm being a bad mommy. It's really hard for me to get out to the barn. And I think she's feeling lonely. She was very happy to see me Saturday and was very affectionate, like she missed me.
You're not a bad mommy! But I will happily take Jubi off your hands hehe
Misty has had November off and she is always so happy to see me since I can't see her in the week as it is pitch dark :( Some get swollen legs from standing in, where I work one of the BOs (for my friends horse) said to give them salty water to wash it out or you can get antibiotics from the vet (but vet = expensive!). But just see how she is in a few days and give her my love

Aw, I think you deff. did the right thing. Sometimes they get stocked up, I wouldn't worry about it. Esp. if she wasn't moving around too much, it kinda just sits there. ;) I think see how she is next time you go, & I'm sure she'll be fine. You're a good mommy to her!

Ride more, worry less.

I completely take them away from their hay bale for a few hours. The pasture has some dormant stubble of grass but its enough for them to walk around searching for a nibble. Ours have room to move about in our dry lot too (its about 2 acres) but if they had their way they would stand at the bale all day only leaving long enough for a quick nap a drink and a poop. The idea is to make them walk around for a bit without anything to eat.

Just an FYI, anytime a horse doesn't finish it's grain it's cause for worry. There is some sort of problem going on.
