Mine did that without alfalfa....two days in due to bad weather was enough.......I could always tell on the way out if a burst like that was coming...they would behave in hand but were SOOOOO ready to take off.....I had three in hand, 1/4 mile of open dirt road towards pasture, passing the arena, with a couple of jumpers practicing, or a horse at liberty, or anything else to work them up even more....

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

She was just feelin' GOOOOOD!

I don't think Alfalfa is to blame, until I moved to OK all I ever fed was alfalfa.

I had upped her Alfalfa. Yeah NEVER doing that again. She gets so hyped up she had NO idea what to do with herself, and she starts doing things (like rearing and spooking and trying to drag people) she normally would never do. Hard to believe shes 18 in the vid XD

I'd bo't an arab in poor shape, his hooves had broken into long shards so he preferred moving backwards. These had to be trimmer before trailering and was done again in 30 days. About six weeks into his rehab of decent hay and 2 dewormings and started on oats, I'd never seen him canter and was getting concerned as he'd put on nice weight. The pasture buddy took a notion run run down a small hill, jump a log and that started a case of sillies. The arab started down the hill at a big trot, popped over the log and took off at the gallop. He ran and ran, bucking and running faster, stopping momentarily to blow, then going again. The show lasted about 15 min. What a joy to watch.
