I am just going to be weaned from my colt and put back to work under saddle. I am actually not that sad but will put up a good fuss for show. I usually have a nice round rump but I have lately experienced some atrophy due to the year off.
I get Adequan injections and am a pretty easy keeper. I like individual turnout as all the other mares drive me nuts. And man....do I go in heat. A real tart. Especially for that tall dark and handsome in the next paddock.
I am in eggbars for some support and enjoy some good chiro once in a while. I need my flax and beet pulp or I am not regular. Also...please trim my chin hairs. They are ridiculous.
Hypersensitive to flies/weeds/etc.
Impossible to put weight on
Bum stifles [knees]
Locking elbows [er... elbows ]
Arthritic fetlocks [all 4 :[ ]
Tendon problems in front [carpal tunnel syndrome ]
Arthritic low back and neck
I need to be kept on softer ground to prevent development of laminitic symptoms
Has trouble seeing things up close
On regumate [BC] for extreme marishness and evil heat cycles
Quietex[not sure what products are out there.. ] [lexapro] daily for nerves
Leaves stall very messy.
Sleeps flat out for way too long at a time
Prefers feeding time to be at a specific time every day
Keeps everything in designated areas [food, poop, hay ][slight OCD]
I should probably be kept in a research center as well
This thread is just proving once again that all mammals are related! And we be related to mammals!!
Me? Witchy mare who absolutely MUST be on her hormones or else I'll eat your skinny ass alive at the first opportunity!!! I can pin my ears, bite, kick and make faces that can scare the tick off a dog!!!
Also have insulin resistance, arthritis and on light exercise. Knee needs surgery but the owner can't afford it! Easy keeper. On ration balancers which really help.
I have a bad hock (ankle), but I work out of it if you warm me up slowly and don't work me when it's cold. I'm also an air fern who really ought to be tested for IR, particularly considering the medical history on my dam's side.
I've got a bowed tendon in my cannon bone (forearm... broke it riding and the sprained ligaments still stick out)
and please don't make me work in the summer... I HATE the heat!
I crib (bite my lip)
and weave (can't stay still)

LOL this is so cute! Let's see . . . I get colicky fairly often, and I'm lame on and off in my hips. I'm also a bit of a roarer. OH! And I'm a cribber (omg my need to chew on things has led to the death of many innocent pens).
I probably should not have been bred--COPD (asthma) which I have passed along to one of my offspring, and I toe out. But I take on the first breeding, have healthy pregnancies and throw beautiful foals.
I'm a cribber (constant lip/pen chewer), and a weaver (can't stand still)
air fern..keep me off the grass, I tend to founder
def need chiro for the bad back
lame way too often
left hock stocks badly every night
constant bitchy mare syndrome, stay away when in heat, I kick
still trying to wean the colts, but have many more years to go
teaser mare, no more foals for this mare...
oh yeah, picky eater...i like a good carrot every now and then, but the cookie treats win out any day
can never keep my water buckets full enough, I will drink 10 full ones a day
but I do keep my stall clean, I always poop and pee in same place every day
I've got something not right somewhere... but I'm not telling where. It's a secret! Let'em worry and scratch their heads for a while. I like to make tham pay attention. Their lives are too simple anyhow. Heh heh heh.
I can't believe these people I got stuck with. Oh my God, what a bunch! There's the one that keeps coming around, trying to teach me stuff. Pitiful. And they used to feed me that lovely grain... now I just get that green pellet stuff. Pleh! Plech! Excuse as I flap my lips around.
I've been through many owners due to my bad disposition. Thank God my last owner rescued me from the Kill pen especially being an aged mare with only a few useful years left.
LOL.....I've been in the kill pen before too. People around me just didn't understand me and they called me dangerous and unruly but really it was just all the damned sweet feed I was eating. A low carb, high protien diet has cured me and I'm sane and perfect for teaching kids .
