Okay so, everytime I feed my mare she acts strange.
I have fed her several different kinds of hay but it hasnt changed. She only acts like this when fed hay. She is out on pasture 24/7 and the grass is (surprisingly) still green enough to support the horses. She also just had her teeth done and she's 3yr.
She will take a few bites of hay, stop, shake her head, walk around, lower her head until its touching the ground and stay like that, sometimes she'll try to lay down or kinda kick. She also keeps looking at her stomach. Then she'll start eating again.
I don't think it colic since its only when she eats hay, she'll then go out and graze without any issues.
My dad suspects that she's not use to eating the hay. Im worried its something else.
When riding, she also acts up to being cinched (tries to lay down, paws, tries to move around) she also pins her ears to leg pressure (you dare to kick, your eating dirt in 2 seconds flat)
