I have just brought a very sweet little miniature mare as my on going search for a horse is taking so long and I really miss having a horse in the paddock. Plus I have always wanted one but am already feeling the itch to get her a buddy!
I have noticed that in the paddock when alone she drops her head down and shakes it from side to side, then usually will spin off to the side. She doesnt do it constantly and hasnt done it if I am interacting with her. We only picked her up yesterday so she is still settling in but I wonder if this is a behavioural thing or possibly a medical issue? She doesnt toss her head up and down which is what I have seen in horses before. I've never seen a horse do this.
Any ideas or reasons for concern?
