    That makes sense, she also has ringworm on her face, but it is going away... So she is itchy there to!

    If it's bc of shedding keep her going. Afterwards give her a super good brushing, so she associates you with yet another good experience.
    If it's bc of colic, keep her going, bc you will help her pass a blockage by movement, hence, why we walk a colicky horse.

    She is now 14.1hh from the last time I measured, about 1 month ago! When I got her 6 months ago she was only 13hh. I am measuring again today. I also measured from her knees to her hair line above the hoof, and she will approximatly be about 15hh or more.

    Okay, and I do brush her before and after every workout (when I get there and when I leave) most of the time, the only time I do not brush her is if she is having a really off day, and not listening, so she doesn't get a reward, or really cold days when I just go out to check on her or say hi.

    If she tries laying down today, I won't let her at all.

    Okay, so today I went out and started to work with Breeze. She was throwing a mini fit while lunging, and she slipped and fell, so I just stopped lunging, checked her out, she wasn't hurt. I was out for about 2 hours, most of that time, I was sitting in the hay watching her and the other horses. Right before leaving I lunged her again, just to see if she learnt her lesson about throwing fits, and she was better. She did not try and lay down, the only times she went down was when she fell, and when I allowed her to after done working with her. (I brought her to a snowbank, where she likes to lay down, and allowed her to, too cool off.)

    She threw a fit and after checking that there was no injury ... you stopped lunging? It might just be me and how I do things, but that's not exactly how I'd teach a lesson about throwing fits. Stopping a horse from working is a reward, not a punishment. You gave her exactly what she wanted.

    I continued lunging after, I just did not up and quit, I just made sure she was okay, gave her a little time to walk around, and then continued with it until she was good.

    Whenever she goes to lay down, you need to get after her and make her get up and move or else she'll develop the habit of rolling whenever she wants to whether she's under saddle or not (I've dealt with several of those that would just drop while you were riding them and they aren't fun, one of them hurt me).

    For future reference, letting her finish rolling and then get up on her own only solidifies that idea in her mind that it's her choice.
