Stan, wondering...if it's not a combination of spring in the air, and being the inky horse at your place.(if I'm thinking correctly). Now that Stella is gone. Maybe he actually needs you to worked until he's exhausted! Does he longe? Can you take him to the surgical and spear him out there? Just from last experience with my horses....spring gets them spunky and they try lots of things. I would wear them out! Make him work for his living arrangements!
Speaking of....was that pic of bugs and the lady, was that SBGMABO?
Not sure what has got into Bugs but he is spooky. Last year he was O/K but we did not have rye grass. Spring will have something to do with it as well with the spring growth and sugar. I get the impression he relaxes for a few minutes and my horse is back, then, over re-acts to nothing but does not calm down.
It is a common thing in NZ with the horses reacting to Rye grass it also effects the cattle and speaking of cattle I am going to put the neighbours cattle in to take the grass down. After that I can let him roam a little more as the feed will have been knocked down for a couple of days.
I need a kid to get on him and take the sting out. I don't bounce.
He has lost that soft easy going look he had. Its a stressed look now.
Anyone seen my horse.
Cheers all it friday evening 5.45 and time to check out the fences and feed the horse magnesium
