    I think I have EPSM and bitchy mare syndrome
    .

    Stick with the scotch & midnight raids. Include ice cream when raiding.

    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.

    Allergies

    Insanely hard keeper. I get sick, watch my weight fall. Even at a "normal weight" you can see my ribs.

    Corrective shoeing (orthotics)

    Nearsighted

    Gelded (Not literally! Just no interest in women.)

    Poor temperament.

    OTTB (used to run track)
    I'm a furry and proud of it!

    Talking Love this!

    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 low ringbone in front (knuckles are getting arthritic-y )

    Also some stifle issues in Winter - my knees hurt after slogging through deep snow.

    And perhaps {ahem} a bit of a grass-belly

    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)

    I have navicular syndrome (caused by a horse stepping on my heel)
    I am sure that I can fix it by going barefoot for a while. No bar shoes and wedge pads for me<G>!

    Though I am not a red headed mare, I am definately bitchy when coming into season.
    More likely to bite your face off than to sulk in a corner.

    I hate to be tied or stabled for long periods of time.
    I am not fond of trailering, and if someone else is hauling me, I need to be tranqued.


    I am sensative and somewhat spooky, but fight wins over flight every time.
    I\'m not crazy. I\'m just a little unwell.

    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'm off in my hind right due to an improperly fitting shoe. Hopefully it won't abscess because I would hate to have to have that sucker drilled out.

    And I shouldn't reveal this...but we had a picnic yesterday and so I changed my feed abruptly - so I may be a little impacted *blush*.

    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
    chronic colicker
    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 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.

    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.

    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 .
