So I mentioned the overstepping thing once but I wasn't gonna say anything else unless its actually as weird as I think it is. I mean, these folks come out every night and they ride him often so I don't want to assume that they wouldn't notice.
Basically, there's a horse at my barn that walks like his feet are 10lbs. He's like a 15hh standard quarter horse, well fed but not fat, bulky but not abnormally so. I've ridden with them before and he moved fine but this was last year, probably august. I turn the horses out a few times a week and every time I get him, he trips and stumbles when he walks, doesn't pick his feet up all the way, leaves very deep impressions of his shoes in the dirt (I take 18 out and his impressions are clearly more visible than all of the horses, including the draft cross whos got the biggest feet Ive ever seen btw) and overreaches. So, it's like he'll be walking and all you hear is his hooves clicking against one another, and then his feet dragging with he moves like he cant lift them all the way off the ground, and then next step they just slam into the dirt. It's odd right?
When you look out of your eyes, at nature happening out there, youíre looking at you. Thatís the real you.
