Hello All! I've noticed a bit of a change in my little Miss. I noticed a small change in her attitude at a show on the 2nd (extremely high and frisky), and the biggest change at our County Fair horse show the on the 11th of this month. She was a BEAR. She was pinning her ears and heavily swishing her tail constantly, especially if any other horse walked past us. She wouldn't listen to me in the ring and danced constantly, even throwing in a buck or two when I asked for a trot in halter. That is not like her. I was ready to kill her. But I had brought our cart to drive her around the grounds after I was done showing. Well... she was a dream. She drove incredibly well and even stood still for me. WTH??? Well a couple days later she came into a FLAMING heat. She was so flirty and... ahem... messy. But at the same time very mean to my gelding, luring him in and chasing him off. She's also just seemed downright cranky this month. My MIL said she chased her dog the other day (never happened before). She also stamped her foot at a child, ears pinned, which she was quickly reprimanded for and she quit, but walked away... but she usually loves the little ones and is extremely gentle and friendly. All in all, she is just off. I don't know if it's pain, or hormones or what. I don't quite know if this is a "call the vet" situation just yet either (as it is now, I know my vet would say that I've just got a grouchy mare) My gut says it's probably not pain like joints or muscles, I think she would have more issues when hooked up if so, but she doesn't. But I know all to well the incredible pain and serious change in mood that cycling can bring on. I've considered ulcers as well... but I just am not sure. I did order some raspberry leaf and am going to give that a try and see if she brightens up a little bit. I'm hoping maybe she's just off this month... What are your thoughts? Am I worrying to much? Thanks in advance.
