As far as Kate's behavior, I second With Grace's idea about herbal or other 'mare' remedies. I have friends who have done different dosing and it seems to help them. Smart Pak offers several options and might be a place to look for more information on the chemical or herbal solutions.
CW, glad to hear your knee is doing better! Yay!
Hunter, how's the pony doing?
Welcome to the new members.
No broken bones just pain but it will take a while. I have mentioned getting blood tests to eliminate any mineral imbalance during this time coming into season, but I think her mind is made up. Its a pitty we are not a little younger and could ride Kate through the bouts of bucking and eliminate a bad behavour. As Kate has managed to dislodge Roslyn before and at the same time of her coming into season it may have become a ritual with her. There are many differing reasons Kate is behaving the way she is but Roslyn has decided to sell her. Its a confidence thing. I do have a problem with Kate being sold as she is a good horse. This is not what we call a dirty horse as most times she behaves and has a personality to boot. A hard decision but if the confidence in the horse has gone hard decisions have to be made. 031.jpg 016.jpg
