|7am work meetings suck but at least I saw this sunrise|
R said his training ride on Tuesday was probably the best ride she ever had on him. I left a voicemail for the vet to discuss next steps to make sure he stays this sound.
And then yesterday happened.
I got there after work, got on, and could immediately tell he was unhappy. Tail swishing, swinging his butt around, head flipping. I asked for trot and he kind of blew up, kicked at the wall and half reared. OK, I get it buddy. Got off.
Trainer R said she rode him earlier and it was the same deal. Of course colic was the first assumption, but he was eating, drinking, and pooping normally with good gut sounds.

Maybe an allergic reaction? Maybe he has been working hard and is having a teenager moment? He has such a good work ethic I lean towards pain over attitude but so far can't rule out either.
Giving it a day or so and will call the vet out if he gets worse or doesn't improve. But damn. We were doing so well.
Think good thoughts for the Odin, please!
