My horse is being lazy (and the exploding star)

My horse has been very lazy these past few weeks, he has not had a change of diet too much and i only ride him every 3 days. He hardly wants to trot or canter.

Man Im freaking out, its all over the internet and the news about that star that is ready to explode and become a supernova any day. Im sooooooo scared :( It really is spelling the end of the world :(

Your horse might just be feeling lazy as it gets warmer outside.

And it's not the end of the world... yet. When that happens to our sun, thats the end of the world.

Like Tim, it's most likely the weather change. Sunny was being really lazy yesterday.
Also, watch out for colic. If he's being lazier then normal and won't eat, get a vet out.

The sun won't explode tomorrow, maybe in five billion years (actually, that's when it's going to turn super nova - I think - and explode).

lol, who's exploding?! I want to see! it is very likely it is the weather change. I know my guys have been a lot more mellow over the last few days because of the warm weather we have had.

Ah, not gonna explode. ;) At least for a loooooooooong time.
Anyway, it's probably the weather difference. Sometimes when it's hot right after a cold day or something, Lexi acts a bit unlike herself. ;)
But if the horse isn't acting normal otherwise, I'd get a vet out.

Ride more, worry less.

Can he be in pain? I would check with a vet to look for hoof tenderness, back pain, small grade lameness (I was surprised to see how a good vet can detect lamness in horses that I was sure they were OK. and I thought I can detect lameness...). Did you check his body temprature? Does he eat as usual?
All this points must be answered before blaming the weather..

In riding a horse we borrow freedom...

OMG... That ^^^ hit me so funny..... I can't even tell you how hard I laughed...

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
