Strange behavior in horse--Need advice
Lately my horse has been doing this strange thing. Background--he is a 13-year-old Friesian gelding and completely healthy as far as I can tell.
What he does is basically kick out with his hind right foot repeatedly. He will keep doing this until you tell him to stop. It looks like he is pawing with this foot really really hard and also kicking it back sometimes. He has done this three times recently. Once when I was just riding him lightly, once while tied up inside being groomed and once tonight after I had just finished jumping him. He is totally sound and does not look lame at all anywhere. When I feel the right hind foot I don't feel anything that could be causing pain or discomfort, but since he is a Friesian he has a bit of leg feathering. Tomorrow I'm going to clip all the feathering off and see if I can find anything. It's just so strange, I have no clue why he is doing this.
