I was doing evening feed tonight, just standing there petting Jackie like normal, minding my own business, and she kicked out at me with her right hind. I was petting her stomach near her right. Thankfully I was able to get out of the way fast enough because that's the last thing I need lol. She did it the other day also when I was brushing her right hind so I felt it and such and there was no noticeable swelling or heat, and I trotted in her hand and my dad didnt see anything strange going on. I just thought it was a fluke, but then when it happened again today I don't know what it is. She does get pretty sassy when she's in heat, but normally only when working her. She had never offered to kick before this. She's usually really well mannered so I'm guessing its a health issue and Im trying to get the vet out here asap but its not going too well :/ Anybody have ideas? She was shut in her stall and it's super cold/windy/snowing so maybe that has her messed up? Idk

Is she usually shut up when it's cold/wet/windy?

We're keeping her away from her true love is the only explanation I have

If nothing else works out, try a chiropractor. I really really recommend it. Baylee was touchy too and is so much better now because her hip was out of place

Though she be but little, she is fierce

If she's been in the stall for longer than she's used to (like if she's used to living outside 24/7 and she's been in the stall for 24 hours) then all that pent up energy could definitely be the reason. Also if she's been in for longer than normal she could have developed ulcers, which would contribute to the cranky and hot behavior. It's the middle of winter so she definitely shouldn't be in heat unless you're keeping her under lights.

I don't think you need to get the vet out just because she kicked twice while she'd been confined; if the behavior doesn't go away after she's been outside again for a couple days then I'd start to worry. I'd pick up some Ulcergard to give her while she's in though.

Ok thanks. And yeah I have no idea what I was thinking when I said that she could be in heat lol. She had only been cooped up for a day when she did it the first time, and a few weeks ago she had to be in there for a weekish because it was -30 all week.

Thanks I had wondered about ulcers, and was planning on picking some Ulcergard up.
