Re: [RC] Does feeding cause HR to hang? - Angie Mikkelson

Don't count on it Joe!  I have a 17 yr old mare that still spikes if she gets water poured on her.  So much to the point that if she is ever allowing water to be poured on her, I would know that she is definately too tired to continue!  At the Owyhee Fandango I had crew for the first time ever and noticed how true this actuall is, she would not pulse down until they quit pouring water on her and I walked her away from the tanks, I could sponge a little but then she just wants to be left alone!  I also learned that her pulse spikes when I leave her, cute, haha.

hot. So when we put water on him his pulse will spike, then drop
quickly when we stop. Go figure.---
