[RC] re: pulse - Teresa Van Hove

I'm really just goofing off, but shouldn't the horses pulse be 60+ 
when walking (anywhere) but would probably drop to normal resting 
immediately if halted?   Havent used my HRM in ages and did
not pay a lot of attention at home when I was most into it;
but my recollection is that walking almost always put the 
pulse well up over the resting rate.  And I hardly think
a pulse jumping to over 50 when buddy leaves is a big deal,
thats not like spiking up over 70 from minor excitement. 

Teresa and Grey and Shade (who will be wearing a HRM 
some this year as I get to 'know' her better) 

If you take his buddy away will jump over 50
When I check my HR as we are walking to the out timer
during the ride (with me in the saddle) he's almost always
60+.  He is at 44 moments before, standing and eating his hay prior to
me getting back in the saddle.  His pulse goes up some just knowing we
are going to go again.
