Happy New Year

Hi All

Here's wishing all of you and your families a Happy and Healthy 2016!

I went to the barn this morning to help with the morning feeding. Laurel was not walking too well. The muddy conditions are really taking a toll on her fused ankle. I helped last night as well.

It started out as a nice morning but when the wind picked up it got cold.
Yesterday afternoon and the past few times that I was out there Sir was very standoffish. He was not having anything to do with me. Ears went back and he nipped at me a few times. It was the same this morning.
So after the chores were done I went into the paddock and he half cocked his head to me and gave me the beluga eye....Like a Beluga whale eye.
Again he was having nothing to do with me. Last night he wouldn't take a peppermint candy from me as I stood on the opposite side of the fence. This is something that he always did. He would come when I called him as well.

So I retreated to the barn feeling sorry for myself and watched him standing there. I then decided that I was going to grab a halter and lead and take him out to graze. Something he and I always did.
He watched me walking to the paddock and his eyes were bulging and his head went back while his nostrils flared! There was my Sir! I went and got the halter on and we went for our walk. I gave him his apple and oats treats and we hung together like before, He seemed like his old self again. And that made me happy. I am so glad that this holiday season is over. Like most people I miss my loved one too. But this horse truly helps me deal with it......

So maybe it was my lack of interaction with him? The muddy paddock? The change in temperature?
Any thoughts?

I have no idea. All I know is that we seem to be back on track!

Until next time!!
