appy the highest she jumped when she shown was about a foot most of her showing was mostly flat work slight jumping.

I worked with her feet today and its DEFF her being stubborn she would hold them up if we gave her a treat every time she held it for a few secs.

But im gonna tlak to my grandma [rich one basicly lmao] and say well we think chance needs a vet for her feet cause she wont pick them up but we dont have the money. she already paid for the rabies and shes gonna pay for her teeth being floated to lol

We will keep trying with the treat thing for a while to see if it gets better but if not then the vet is going ot be called... or should we call the ferrier...

If it is her being stubborn why did it just start now... something had to click inside her head that made her think "oh, i don't want you to have my foot anymore" it just doesn't happen randomly

well she always use to pull her feet away and stomp it down but never this bad she would at least pick it back up for me


so its probably been progressing slowly or something idk


if she continues ill get the vet and see whats going on.

i hope so!

I mean now she has diareha like omg horrible!! I think its because now shes getting more hay then shes use to, and when she was at my old barn she never really got grain every day and now she gets it 2 times.

ughh so worried about my baby :(

I knowof a 5 year old horse who foundered, so it isn't unheard of.

I would probably take her off the grain and see how she goes. It might just be a grain overload or something. Do you know how much grain she is getting per feeding?

If she's getting free choice hay, and is of decent weight, i wouldn't see why she would need the grain, or a lot of it.. Gem's on pasture and he just gets a handful (literally) of grain with his supplements mixed in. Vega gets 1 quart of feed 2x a day. Gem gets it 2x a day as well.

When you would pick up her feet at your old barn, would she give you a lot of trouble? Did it progressively get worse and worse?

I would like to just throw this out there sense we are talkin about problems liftin feet. Nana was bein a booger at my last lesson and when i held her foot up so i could clean them she would try to set it down so i lifted her foot higher and put my body weight against her to make sure that she would have a hard time shiftin her weight towards me, and it worked for me...

Course your case is different but i thought i would throw that out there lol.

I love my horse. She is the wind beneath my wings.
