Finally went out to ride today. Was walking out to the pasture with my mom, per usual. I was scaning the field and started panicing. Where the heck is Honor! So at this point I am up to the gate, and still can't see him. I was yelling his name, like he actually responds to it -_-. Then I noticed a brown lump on the ground, yup that would be Honor lying down. So I started yelling, because him laying down freaks me out, because he never lays down. So at this point I am at the half wall in the middle of the field and he looks up at me with that "dude, you disturbed my nap so go away." look. So he got up and didn't shake and just continued to give me that look. So I went and got him and he was drenched with sweat of course and very warm. Great. So I walked him up to the gate and listened to his stomach...nothing. He's puffing at this point, and the word colic is registering in my head. Of course I know nothing about the symptoms of it, he was definatley acting out of character though. So I walked him to the crossties and hooked him up. Then a loud gurgling noise came from his stomach and I still was curious. So I took him in the outdoor and troted him a couple rounds and he seemed fine. So I saddled him up and got to work on some serpentines and laziness. Hah But I would say today was definatley interesting.
