    In this day and age there is absolutely NO reason to be able to 'smell' when a women is menustrating. We can take a bath or shower daily. Timely changes and proper disposal of sanitary products should eliminate any odors.

    I have to strongly disagree. Some women put out a certain odor when they are menstruating. Even with daily bathing and products that are scented (note - not all products are scented, or advertized to limit odor) - a lot of women smell. Also, humans do not have a very keen sense of smell - while we might not be able to smell a woman's cycle, other animals most certainly can.

    I've never had that happen, but I've really only ridden Mares

    UPDATE: I was not able to make it out on friday, but I did make it out today and I spent about three hours with my crazy baby.

    I've determined either it was my TOM or my new coat that was making him insane. As soon as I got him inside and tied him up, I took off my coat and gloves. Not for any reason other than that I was quite warm.

    He tossed his head once or twice but nothing major and he only did that once I was tightening his girth, which he has always done, even though he has been checked and rechecked for pain or discomfort.

    I gave him his massage, no problems there and tacked him up. We worked out some kinks and I was scared that once I started 'undressing' him he was going to start up again, but... nothing.

    He put his head in my hands, like normal, let me massage his ears, brush out his forelock, wipe his eyes, everything. So, I'm still not COMPLETELY sure what he was going through last week, whether it was something personal, something about me or if it had just been my stupid coat which has faux fur around the hood, which drives Jojo NUTS, but I've never noticed Butch have a problem with it. I DID just buy it 3 weeks ago, but last week was one of the first times I wore it with him.

    Anyhow, thank you everyone for your supportive suggestions and I just wanted to let you know how it turned out.
