The past few days I have noticed Cinny standing a little "wonky." Today it was really noticeable, it's as if he has to pee...only he never pees he just stands like that for 5 or 10 minutes every now and again. Today he also seemed a little "off." I can't quite pinpoint what it was, he just wasn't really himself.
His cap refill is GREAT. I skin tested him for dehydration and he had instant snap back, so doesn't really seem dehydrated. He has good gut sounds on one side, the other was a little more quiet than I would like. His eyes look normal. He seems really SLEEEEEEPY though even on the lunge. Normally he pins his ears and grits his teeth if I ask her to canter and today he just had no fight at all and went right into it. It's almost as if he were drugged.
I put him in one of the empty barn stalls and watched him for a few hours and he seems fine now, however he does still periodically stand like he's going to pee but then does nothing. I've never really seen or heard of a horse standing that way before, and he hasn't ever done it before. I'm not sure if he's just having an off day or sometime is going on.
I do know that his feed HAS been switched. They were feeding the paddock horses round bales of just plain grass, brome I believe and this week they switched them to an Alfalfa Mix.
What do you think? New food? Off day? Or need a vet?
