    Video Odd behaviour, any ideas?

    Update this morning. Good amounts of poo in the field so appears to be eating his hay/grass well. When I gave him his bucket feed we didn’t have any of the ‘electric shock’ type snatching away. Will see how he goes the rest of the day, but fingers crossed it was just a reaction to something...

    Video Odd behaviour, any ideas?

    Hi, thank you for the reply and it does sound very similar behaviour. Arlo has never displayed any signs of head shaking previously, so I’m hoping this is just a reaction to something which has caused some form of sensitivity and heading shaking like behaviour rather than actual head shaking.

    Video Odd behaviour, any ideas?

    No I’ve never touched his whiskers. I did give his beard a trim with the trimmers yesterday, so the same day I noticed the twitchiness. I don’t go anywhere near whiskers as he lives out and so I keep as much on as possible but thought I could have possibly nicked him somewhere, but again I...

    Video Odd behaviour, any ideas?

    Yes really odd, when I tried to feed him by hand, it was almost like I was giving him a static shock (I’m sure I didn’t) it was so quick him pulling away. I also hope he’s better tomorrow, if not will be on the phone to vet. They do like to worry us!

    Video Odd behaviour, any ideas?

    I had as good of a look as I could and couldn’t see anything untoward. If he’s the same tomorrow I’ll contact the vet. He was totally normal ridden and not fussing in his mouth at all, which is what make me think more lips/gums? Reaction to something maybe? I wouldn’t have ridden but to tack up...

    This is the ‘yummiest’ feed I know he likes, he only gets a token feed anyway but gave him a bit more this evening so I could film. He finished the feed with no issues after this video clips then proceeded to go and munch his hay. A bit odd.

    Thanks for replies and thoughts. Dentist was last Monday so a week ago and he has only behaved like this since yesterday afternoon. If still like it tomorrow will ring the vet for advice. Have had a good look around his gums and lips and can’t see anything obvious, he doesn’t seem to mind me...

    Video Odd behaviour, any ideas?

    Yesterday afternoon and today Arlo has been acting a bit odd. When given a bucket feed or you attempt to feed him by hand as soon as his lips make contact with the food in the bucket/my hand, he snatches his head away and head shakes, been scratching his lip and pawing the ground and just...

    Clipperman Jewel trimmers for feather - yay or nay?

    I used them today to tidy up my cobs face and feathers. He doesn’t have masses of feather but they’re very thick. They did an ok job, but to be honest I have the cheapy eBay ones which I think are better, if just for tidying up face and feathers. Before After

    Ever realise quite how well behaved..

    What a lovely post 😀 I’ve felt like this recently too. I wanted to ride the other day but whether was terrible. I brought my 4 year old in with it blowing a gale. Then it started pelting it down so he hung out with me for 20 minutes in one of the big barns whilst the shower passed. Just stood...

    Splint x Ray?

    Hi Michen! Just wondering how Boggles splint is getting on now? Arlo has thrown one similar size and in same place. No lameness or heat and not bothered when palpated. Did you just carry on as normal in the end or treat it in anyway? We’re only light hacking at the minute so thinking to just...

    I love boggle, I think he’s great!! And lovely to see such a fit horse. He reminds me of the little event horse Templar Justice.

    Livery dispute advice

    Is it really worth it? If you choose to turn your horse out in a mixed herd then you should accept the risks.

    Saddles

    I just picked up a really nice little Silhouette GP for my Welsh D x Cob. £300 off eBay and with a little bit of flocking it fits him like a glove and I have really struggled to find something wide enough for him.

    Greedy elderly horse leaving feed

    My normally lick the bowl clean cob is completely off any hard feed. Eating hay and pooing plenty so can only assume the grass is really coming through and he’s just not needing any hard feed. Fine by me! 😀 But certainly as yours is an older chap I’d just get teeth checked to be sure.

    Is it wrong...

    I think you feeling this way just shows it was the right thing for you and him right now! Just see how you feel when his holiday is over, if you dread the thought of him coming back then maybe you’ll know then whether it would be best to sell? Sometimes a bit of time out does the world of good...

    ... and overall pretty successful! Took Arlo and a livery to a polework clinic today. It’s only five minutes drive down the road so I normally ride to the venue but thought it was a good chance to get the new trailer for a spin. Arlo loaded straight up first, then loaded his buddy. They...

    How would you deal with this silly problem?

    We hav We have done this, but to be honest he has no problem walking up to a parked car if I ask him to. We’ve done this with my partners pick up truck as they are particularly suspicious but he just walks straight up and says hello through the window. I think it’s more, as other people say...

    How would you deal with this silly problem?

    Thank you, it’s reassuring it’s a relatively normal ‘phase’, hoping he gets over it soon as it’s just a bit annoying. If only you could tell them they don’t need to worry about these things! :rolleyes:
