Rick is doing much better this week!! Confounded horse! Up to his normal behavior, sweet, alert, 100% different than last Thursday! Still waiting for blood results... He's activating all four legs, no dragging or swaying, even fought Cowboy and was charging around the field Sunday!
Question: Have you ever had a horse that licks their lips often?
I'm not talking occasionally but often. Seems Rick does it like a habit. His teeth have been checked, he doesn't have a cold or infection that I can find. Looked deep at his tounge, no sores or cuts. This isn't anything new he's done this since I got him, just becoming more aware of how often.
He stands there licks, grazes, looks at me, licks, walks up to one of the other horses, licks, walks around the field, pauses and licks...
Why or what can this be? I know they often lick when they are thinking but I hardly think I have a genius on my hands!
