Re: [RC] Alternative Ride/Race After-care - Sullivan

Hi Lynne,

I interesting, and but I have one question for all on the list...I have
observed several horses, including my own....
vet in after a ride, with great scores, be allowed to roll immediately
thereafter and cramp up.  Has this happened to
anyone else?  Horse acts crampy, gets sweaty patches in the flank area,
muscles tighten...but can be walked out of it.
Nothing like an early-ride tie up.  I now to not allow a horse to drop and
roll after a ride until it is thoroughly cooled down and somewhat hydrated.

Nobody's mentioned my horses' favorite.  After untacking, if there is a
decent or prospective rolling spot in camp, we head there.  Then down
time for a half hr with a sloppy lyte mash.  Then a bit of cleanup and
vet for completion.  Then look for that rolling spot again (or a better
one) and a 2 hr nap before I touch 'em.
