Well, I was at Drill practice last night and we had a record number of attendees! 14 showed up! WOW! That meant that Sis who is very cold backed did not get her usual 15 minute warm up.
I thought her new shoes from a new farrier might be the culprit and she was sore that was why she was being so foul. um no..... She was balking, humping her back, crow hopping, general nastiness because she did not get her 15 minutes of lunging, showmanship practice and stretches.
But I do have to say it was very cold last night we were all miserable 2 legged and 4 legged.
SHE ALMOST HAD ME! I almost called it quits before practice started because I thought her feet were sore... Then when I realized she was being a Bee-Otch, I was furious with her.
How rude of her! So Miss Thang you don't get things your way and you throw a monumental tantrum, you spoiled rotten @$%&*! Oh crap.. she is more like me everyday...
Cold backed was just the beginning, she was ear pinning and foul to all the other horses until at least 40 minutes into practice until she finally chilled. I think she likes drill a lot, when we are actually doing the maneuvers she gets her groove on, but her personal space bubble is going to be a challenge. I think I'm going to have to DOUBLE the Mare Magic ! ha ha ha.
Next I think will definitely be a joint supplement. Too see if that could be her cold backed/my joints ache issue. The Chiro says she is all good spinal, hip and Atlas wise...
Anyone used a Joint Supplement with success?
Shots vs. Powder etc...
