Yes, Jazzyrider, that is one of our horses' many raven friends! :) As for target practice with the bird, I believe that they may be protected in this area :)

Our horses seem not to even notice the birds hop from back to back, they must be enjoying something the birds are doing ?? Maybe it feels like a nice back scratch?

A horse at the barn here did that once. The horse was tying-up. We gave her some muscle relaxers and she was fine. The girl riding her had riden 10-15 minutes before she got off and came back to the barn because the horse felt a little funny. As we untacked her she got more and more sweaty, and started to show signs of stiffness in her back end, which is when we gave her a shot of the relaxers. Tying-up can be very dangerous and can come out of seemingly no where like a change of feed, work load, or not cooling out a horse properly.

thanks, I know what tying up is. She wasnt worked anywhere near hard enough to tie up, plus so gets a daily balance of electrolytes of which she had already had by the time the sweating started. If she had tied up I would have known.

Thanks though :)
