I'm just wondering about the ins and outs of stocking up. I only really know the barest of details and today when Lacey was stocked up, I wished that I knew more.
It's been super snowy so Lacey has basically been just hiding in her shed, not really moving, for most of the day. She's basically acting like she's stalled...only she can leave but she doesn't want to and therefore refuses to leave unless I "force" her to leave. It is pretty funny though, when I go up there to feed and pick out her poop from her "stall" she does the whole 'stand really still, move very carefully, we're in close quarters' stall picking thing. Anyway, so both her back legs were a little stocked up this morning. They went straight back to normal after I made her leave the shed and lunged her at a walk, with a little trot, for about 10 minutes.
But anyway, what's "ok" stocking up and what's bad stocking up? Tell me what you know! :)
I assume that uneven stocking up or heat in the legs is probably bad...what about all 4 legs being stocked up but no heat and they're all even?
I feel like there should be a chart about this, like "call the vet if..." "encourage exercise if..."...
Thanks in advance! :)
