Flash was off and his hooves were very muddy so I cleaned them out and put him in his stall where they could dry. I suspect he has the same "wet = soft soles = hard footing = ouch" issue going on.
This evening when I got home from work, I turned Jackson out in the arena for his evening chill pill time. He was calm and relaxed, not racing around or blowing off steam. I let Flash out into the pasture to walk around and stretch while I mucked and he still seemed a bit off.
Brett got home from work and I gave him the update. He wanted to let Flash chill in the arena as well so I suggested putting them in together. I figured Jackson was tired/mellow and Flash was sore so they would behave. They haven't been able to hang together in months.
|This behavior didn't exactly help either. He's as bad as the horses.|
I hope they can walk tomorrow.
