I went out yesterday to see my horses with a friend from back in the day as kids - she was my horse buddy and maid of honor at my wedding. We haven't really seen much of each other in years but she wanted to see my horses. Biscuit was a good boy, haltered him, brought him up to the wash rack and rinsed him off. He acted like it hurt
but he got treats of apples from Maryalyce and he liked that...got to graze for a while.
Today, go out there to get him to groom him and he was going to be ridden by the girl who rode him recently. OMG he ran from me like a crazy horse...for an hour and then a 1/2 hour for KD. Wouldn't let us catch him. I walked after him round and round for an hour at noon in the freaking Texas heat and humidity til I literally felt ill.
Never could catch him and he is acting like a horse that is almost afraid someone. He is in a 2.5 acre pasture or maybe a little bigger. He tried to get Sarge to join in but Sarge was like "dude, didn't you know it is freaking hot and I am not joining in this foolishness".
I went back later at feeding time and tried to catch him. I got almost up to him with feed and he spun around (I think Biscuit missed his calling for barrel racing) so fast and was gone. Ok...no feed for you. There is a nice pasture of grass of course but grain will be withheld until I can catch him. Tomorrow may be totally different. He may stand there like a trooper to b e caught. I know that I haven't been able to fool around with him since I started having all of these health issues but this is the pits. If I can catch him, he will go into the arena and stay in there. It actually has grass in it so he won't be lacking exercise or food. I just need to be where I can catch him and work with him. Ugh....I never had problems til March of this year with this horse! 20130610_120033.jpg 20130610_115123.jpg
