I just grabbed the squeeze bottle out of... like desperation. But, I am totally thinking the squirt gun now, because I bet it would totally work and I wouldn't have to my arm as much. I've never heard of breath spray, I am learning so many new things, I LOVE it, because Butch will NOT be my last problem baby, I'm sure.
He had only two 'moments' today and I didn't have to get the bottle close to him or point it at him at all, just the noise made him re think his little self. He stood perfect for his time out, only tried to open his stall door twice, and I was able to pick all his feet, which recently I have been a little nervous to, because he's a nut case.
Thank ALL of you guys for the support and for the absolutely wonderful ideas, as well. Even my BO today said 'What did you find an article about that or something?' I felt all smart, ha ha.
Now, onto feeling dumb...
CJ82Sky ? I've had the vet out and had him checked, numerous times, because his behavior shift was so sudden I just KNEW he was hurt somehow, some where, but I have been assured he is not. The vet will be coming again next week and I am going to make him go tip to tail again, no matter how many times he rolls his eyes at me.
The dumb question... How can I check for ulcers myself? I know, it's dumb, but I honestly have no idea. Is there something specific I look for or just signs?
I'm just wondering because I am once again stuck at the mercy of vets, etc. when I would like to be able to make sure of things for myself, ya know?
He knows when you're happy
He knows when you're comfortable
He knows when you're confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.
