Hi! So I noticed that today when I rode Dixie, she didn't move. Let me explain. So sometimes she moved around without a problem when I was riding her, and there were periods when she just wouldn't walk on. She didn't trot either, when I asked her. She just walked quickly. There was a period when I kept nudging and pulling and she wouldn't move until Storm started to walk towards us. It's like she won't go unless the other horses come, too. I don't think she's in pain. Is it the other horses? I miss the jumpy, snorting, trotting, rearing, prancing, running-away mare I used to have! Where did she go???

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly find, how far they can go.

She is probably in heat.
Baylee gets like that too and is lazy when in heat. So I take advantage of it and use her laziness to go on a nice slow trail ride :)

Though she be but little, she is fierce

Wait… does that mean she's going to have a foal?? Yes, a slow trail ride would be nice. :)

No she shouldn't be pregnant unless she has had access to a stallion (or vice versa) it just means that she is capable of getting pregnant. All mares go into heat at times just some show the signs worse than others.

Did she just now starting to do this? Try a crop. It could be that there is other horses around her or could be in heat. Mares go into heat every three week for five days in the summer. That could be why she isn't moving.

Lol when Jackie goes into heat she moves faster, not slower but yeah, they're all different about it. If its certain times and she's fine the other times I would say shes in heat. Wait a little bit and see and if it doesn't resolve check tack/vet. And if its not any of those, it's time to get your crop out. :)
