This chill horse disappeared overnight
The next day, it was even worse. I felt like I was on a ticking bomb and it didn't matter what direction we were going he wanted to crank his head to the outside and spook at everything. He wasn't even responding to spurs, which is shocking since he is the king of over reaction to anything on his sides. I finally said eff this shit.
I grabbed a lunge line, took him out to the hills where he got to do trot to canter transitions. I don't know if it is a plus or a minus but he didn't get out of breath or break a sweat. Either way he finally got his brain back and I got on him. I managed to get some decent work, so I called it a win. Of course when I got him back to the barn, he was super cute and sweet. Turd monkey.
Not an innocent face!
It warmed back up a bit, so hopefully I can keep his brain in his head while he adjust to the lack of oppressive heat. I really can't blame him for feeling spicy, I get the same way in the fall. I am so happy to be able to walk more than five steps and not break a sweat.
