newbie pulse question

	Easyboots and shoes are "heavy"--ever hear the saying "an ounce on the
foot is a pound on the back"?  It takes more effort to lift heavier feet;
therefore a slightly higher pulse is not out of line--nor is it necessarily
a bad thing.  Harder work leads to conditioning.
	I think most horses see a pulse drop when they go to a canter from a
trot--I think the canter is "easier" in the sense of workload for a number
of reasons.
	No insight into some of the other 'anomalies'--maybe at the walk he is
distracted by his environment and showing 'nerves'?
