Mathilda is making the Thoroughbred look sane. Due to winter weather and muddy footing, her current routine is pen at night and handwalks/grazing during the day. Furthermore, we have switched her from a senior feed to a pellet of which she likes the taste. No more leftovers. More calories + less activity = spooking, spinning, & trotting in hand. From a horse who often tacks at the walk.
While concerned that she might hurt herself, we are delighted to see her full of pep & vinegar.
