    Spring fever already?

    Anyone else got ponies going into spring fever this early?

    It's still february for crying out loud

    Selena was a pill today, just full of herself. It's nice and sunny and warm, and three times she thought it'd be cute to rear...straight up in the air. She hasn't done that in two years. I rode her out into the pasture to pony out another horse which we do all the time, well she was being ridiculous. Kept trying to kick the other horse (A horse she is very familiar with) and finally ended up giving her to a friend and smacked her on the hip. She jumped straight up in the air and definitely got a come to jesus talk from me for that...I don't do rearing well.

    I choose to laugh about it now because I know this is a side effect of the nice weather!

    Anyone else having these problems this early?

    Oh yes, Lacey is allllll over that spring fever action!
    She's been shedding for a few weeks now and she's just gotten into the "hair in Wallaby's mouth whenever Wallaby touches Lacey" stage and that eems to generally be the stage she goes nuts in.


    Yaaaaaaaaaaay spring.

    Sonny is the same way whenever it gets above 35 degrees. Last Sunday it was 40 and he was running around like a madman in the arena kicking, bucking, and farting for 10 minutes. I didn't ride that day but let him out into the pasture for a bit while I cleaned stalls. He needed the fresh air as much as I did. Can't wait for spring to get here.

    Back when I was still riding at one of the bigger barns in my area it seemed that every horse would get very full of themselves when the temperature would get over 30F here in New York.

    Fun to watch them in the pasture but not fun to be on them.

    Oh yes! I took Cargo out on the lunge line yesterday and he took off bucking, kicking and rearing for about 15 mins. Before I could get him slightly settled enough for a calm(ish) walk down the road.

    It's contagious around here, horses and people have it. It's been pretty entertaining watching Merit & Honor act like hooligans in the pasture.
