Recently I just moved my 12 year old hackney pony to a new barn. She did perfect yet in her stall and while riding, her ears seem to be back or in an unhappy position. I know it's not her saddle because just the day before we moved her she did wonderful in the saddle with a happy look. Could it be just from moving so quickly that caused this? What can I do to help?

If it's just her ears, give her time. She could be listening for familiar or unfamiliar things.

Yes, horses do need time to adjust to a new routine. New environment, new herd dynamics can all play a part. I wouldnt be too overly concerned. Did you switch to a new feed and new hay right away? That too can play a part.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

Okay. Thank you guys :)
All of a sudden I did begin giving her grain since it's apart of the new board plan. Hay hasn't changed.
I'm progressing the amount of grain
