    Again, ty for the replies. As I said before, I think it was a nervous thing - if it wasn't, whatever she was lacking, she lacks no more.

    Magnesium (Mg) is the best calming diet supplement I know of. It also plays a huge part in the proper absorption of Ca and P and has a symbiotic relationship with Vitamins A & D.

    Apple cider vinegar has Mg in it. Many of the problems with nerves and nervousness as well as other mineral and Vitamin absorption need the Mg in the apple cider vinegar ---- or can get it from a mineral that has the Ca and Mg as well as Vitamin A in it.

    Our latest addition was doing this when we first got her but stopped once we put a good quality mineral lick in her stable - I've often seen this happen so worth always having one there just in case she starts again
