Maybe Gem wanted me to be a bird. lol

Yeahh i have no idea what he spooked at, but something scared the bajeebers out of him. And then he did that snort and was like on guard.

Hehe...I'm still laughing! I promise if I get a vid of me falling off I will post it so you can laugh at me too.

That's awesome that he came back and faced you though. He's a good boy. I wouldn't have the vet come out though. He does not look like he is in pain at all, just a big old spook!

well his feet have been bothering him too. He's had abcesses before and had to have surgery on them, so we want to make sure his feet are ok. And even though it could have just been a scare, we want to make sure. Gem has always been a little iffy with his back. I can't really explain how he would react, but it wasn't like he was grumpy about having a saddle on, more or less that he didn't want the weight of it on. He was even worse with a western saddle.

Another thing too, is that when i would sit or post to his trot, he'd have a somewhat choppy stride, but as soon as i went up into a half seat, his stride lengthen and he seemed to be happy not to have weight on his back.

Ohh..well that seems a little odd. Well in that case I would call the vet out. In the vid he does not seem in pain but when you describe stuff like that it sounds for sure like he has pain!

yeahh, if you were to see him from the very beginning you'd see what i was talking about. We don't know which set of feet hurt him. We can pick his hind feet fine, but his fronts? He'll pick up his fronts and then lean back and put them down. We've tried almost everything and there was no change in it. We never tried tying his foot and don't plan to either. Also if you try to pick up his front feet for a while, he'll back into a corner and he like freezes up. Poor Gem Bar baby.

You can see it right before he bucks. Its like he got a wiff of something that scared the begeebers out of him. His head comes up his ears forward and he is in alert mode. He looks terrified I'm not so sure its a pain thing either after watching that. Do get him check though you just never know. ouuff too cute
