The weather has been absolutely HORRIBLE lately. Rain, tornadoes, humidity, heat. So Cinny hasn't been worked much this week. Yesterday I brought my daughter for the first time since his diagnosis and she groomed him and played with him in the turnout. I have now confirmed that it is NOT my imagination, Cinny is a very different horse personality wise. My daughter says he is fun again like when I first got him.
He actually PLAYED in the turnout today, this time with a small branch that fell off of a tree into the arena. He picked it up, tossed it around, stomped it, picked it up, tossed it into the air and spun around and bucked at it like he was trying to kick it before it hit the ground or something. He played with that stick for a good half hour! Again, didn't have the cameras ready, gah.
Then we went in for a nice heavy misting of fly/tick spray and electrolytes. Then I put up his new stall guard (It's SmartBlue but in the pictures it looks pink for some reason). My stable does not allow us to put fans on stalls, but we can put stall guards on and open the windows completely so at least it help. We DO have ceiling fans in the center aisle too and they are usually outside in the turnouts all day unless it's super muddy. 2014 06 09 001.jpg Cinny 2014 06 18 001.jpg Cinny 2014 06 18 002.jpg
