Horse Standing with Hind Legs Crossed -- Anyone Seen This?
So this was a new one for me, and I've seen a lot of odd things that my horses have done in the past...
Today was the second time that I found my horse standing out in his paddock with one hind leg crossed over the other. The other time was about a month ago and was a similar thing -- he just stands there, like he's dozing or hanging out, no big deal. When I get his attention enough to get him moving, he moves just fine, and nothing seems amiss. I just think it is ODD to stand like that?!
My husband's horse does this. He rubs one leg on the other and then leaves them crossed if he isn't told to move off. He will do this especially if he is wearing hind boots like SMBs which make him really itchy and sweaty as well as as soon as we take any boots off his legs.
Weird horse. But yes, have seen it commonly and DH's horse is totally sound and normal.
Well yes.. Since my dear departed old man was known as the horse from "Special Class" I can relate.. Truman used to do that on occasion, I just chalked it up to one more of the many "Special" things he did!
"you can only ride the drama llama so hard before it decides to spit in your face." Caffeinated.
Whew! Glad to know he's not the only dork doing this. This IS the horse that has punctured his head on a plastic bucket, so he has a history of doing dumb things. The first time I saw him doing this crossed leg thing, he had both feet flat on the ground, not resting one like in my photo. That seemed even weirder!
Someone mentioned the virus message when accessing webshots up above, but I have used the link from 3 different computers running different antivirus programs and not ran into any warnings, so not sure what's up with that.
