Unexplained Attitude Changes
My old pony recently started giving me a really bad attitude, like threatening to bite and pinning her ears back. She doesn’t show any signs of being sick. What did I do?
What a great question! The first step is to get a thorough checkup from a qualified veterinarian. As you correctly implied, abrupt behavioral changes are often related to physical issues. Pinning ears, evading physical contact and similar behaviors can be signs of pain, often in a pony’s back or legs.
