The only thing that bothers me about her circling is that if we don't have time to fill another hay net for her in the morning, if we toss it on the ground she strings it all out and drags it into whatever mud or poop pile is most convenient at the time xD the pawing isn't a big deal if it doesn't bother anyone else, although it does make me a little bit nervous about hitting a hoof on a rail or something. I think that's just me being a worry wart though. Lol
She does stand fairly quietly without feed. Swings her butt around every now and then but for the most part she's fine. When I first started tying her she was super fidgety but I've been hard tying her to our patience tree every few days while I work with Sour and she's been doing tons better.
Ladytrails I didn't think about it that way! You're right. I'm so glad that it doesn't seem to hurt her to walk anymore. Its a terrible thing to see a baby who can't even walk, when she should be running, bucking, and playing!
What other behaviors are classified under OCD behaviors? She actually did crib back when we had her as a 3-4 month old but we realized that was due to ulcers. Once we treated those she stopped immediately.
Me too, nvr2many, me too...
Cherrij, by cereal I'm assuming you mean her grain? She's getting 3.5 lbs every day, and 4 lbs of alfalfa/timothy pellets. I don't particularely like having her on grain but we feel like she needs it at least for now, if for nothing but extra calories. She's on Nutrena Life Design: Mare and Foal, which was the lowest sugar, non mollasses feed I could get in my area. She just started eating it two weeks ago, after coming off of Purina Junior which I REALLY didn't like. It was a complete feed and smelled and felt like mollasses >.> you're totally right though. At least she's not a pig about her feed!
GreenBackJack- its been insane! O_o we only had a 30% chance for rain on Saturday, but ended up getting 7". And it looks like its about to start pouring again right now. My 'radar dog' is going nuts xD
Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
