I think my gelding has dementia...
I think the old man is going crazy in his old age. I knew he was q tad barn sour, but never imagined to this extent. I got him out of the pasture the other day to ride for the first time in about a month and a half. Took him to thw barn and he was so fidgety he run me into the stall twice. I took him out and tied him high and tight to a tree, went and sat in my car and watched. He hollered, reared and pawed for about 30 minutes before he calmed down.
The next day, I took the pony out of the pasture to the roundpen to work her. I was gone for about 30 minutes and could hear him hollering the entire time. When I took her back, he was standing by the gate soaking wet and covered in sweat foam.
I'm afraid he's going to hurt himself or give himself ulcers from the worry and stress.
