Whats up with this horse?
Hi everyone I am rewriting my post. I have a horse he is a ten yr. Old gelding . By a pros point of view he is dead broke. Although I got him with problems and thought I fixed them some of them are reoccuring. Is it because of spring?
About three weeks ago it started again. Head tossing, rearing when another horse is to far ahead on a trail. Spinning in the ring bouncing on front end. His bucks are weak but do occur. You also could never get on the horse after you tack him up. So there you are evertime spinning the horse like he is a two yearold,backing him up. Yet in the middle of the woods no matter whats going on you can get off the horse do whatever it is you want to do and he will just stand there. Then to get back on him is not a problem. Additionally his ribs hang out on oneside, yet has subsantial muscle and fat. Pees alot up to three times in two hours, he stretchs out in a peeing stance more so. He has had lymes in the past year so doxy for 30 days. He really didnt seam better from the meds and levels where not sky high so who knows. The bit is good he's teeth where just floated and didnt really need it. Dewormer, rabbies, coggins are all up to date? I could go on and on. Basically I have been through alot with the horse and overall he is worth keeping because he is willing t0 do so much. So with some advice from chiro I am going to check his back and have it adjusted. Also going to check basic levels in his blood. Anyone have a clue, is there something in his diet or is he just stubborn. Anyway I hope this is more clear to read then the last post.
Thanks for any input
