rant alert
Bastard horse threw me off for no reason!
And I landed on my back on a still frozen part of the menage.
WIBU to suggest his owner sell him to the meat man?!

rant over

He has never thrown anyone before, he is normally the most pleasant, safest thing ever. He is an angel with the kids and this is completely out of characher that I'm really worried about him.

He did get colic a few weeks ago for the first time ever, just after we switched his feed? Do you think that could have contributed or was he just being a shit?!

Ouch indeed - are you ok? It was chilly and breezy here, perhaps he's just feeling on top form and wanted to prove it? Then the usual suggestions of teeth and back.....

i have a huge bruise on my lower back and thing iv bruised my sciatic nerve, so im hobbling around n its very painful.
Prior to getting on, he pratted around whilst i tacked him up, and then wouldnt stand to let me mount, so he might have just been having an off day. His teeth have been checked recently, although now you mention it, he has lost weight recently (hence the change of feed), so it might be his saddle Xmas Hmm

You know it could be the food..... Not talking from my experience or any knowledge.... But I follow safecobs, and Lia has a TB , and the other day (in her video) her TB was going mental, she then had a jumping lesson that afternoon and apparently said TB wAs bonkers .... Not her normal self , which she said was all because she had put her TB (sorry have a mind blank on the food monsters name) on barley hoops (apparently) to help her keep weight on..... So food really worth investigating.

Ouch indeed, that sounds painful! Definitely worth looking into the food, if that has been changed recently. I think there is something in the air at the moment though, I don't know if it is the cold weather or what, but all the horses at our yard seem to have the devil in them at the moment!

I hope you stop aching so much soon. I find wine helps! Grin
