Horse full of energy suddenly? Rice bran --> flax switch
I recently switched over (over the span of a week) my horse's rice bran to flax. This switch also coincided with the cold weather that blew in.
It's been 2 weeks now, and my horse is high as a kite! This summer he was so pokey in the ring that I had to wear spurs to get him moving forward. Now he's a ball of energy that spooks, bucks and is fighting me to do what "he" wants to. WTF?!
He has been working more frequently so I know part of this change is due to increase fitness. Is it possible the switch from rice bran to flax could be part of it? (And the cold weather, of course )
