    Not normal at all. Sometimes there is clapping, but never silence. My DH even commented on how he doesn't ever recall a movie where the credits rolled in silence. It was eerie and reverent all at...

    lol. most things can be cold-water wash, hang or lay flat to dry.

    I agree with a full body check-up and probably bodywork. My gelding wasn't lame but a tiny bit stiff turning to the right (thought it was just my riding).
