Maraschino had been in the yards till Jools came to trim their feet, then in the round pen for an hour till we left, and he was calm as, so signs of the mycotoxins effecting his brain.
For those of you overseas who don't get mycotoxins in your grass... this is a summary...
Yes, he's lost weight - it definitely makes them hallucinate and imagine all sorts!! Scary stuff.
So he's off grass and on a toxin binder, extra salt, then I'll add magnesium.
So - we arrive at Woodhill and Maraschino had never been there before so he was a little alert but nothing too bad. I was working Garbo on the 45ft line and my friend had Maraschino and just started working him a little. Then I saw what happened - the extra movement and exercise actually caused the toxins to circulate more I think and he got so high on adrenalin - nothing could make him calm... sure he licked and chewed but he'd be snorting at the next scary thing within nano-seconds. The poor boy - he was completely covered in sweat within minutes - another thing that seems to happen with mycotoxins.
|Garbo being really good even while Mr M far away ..|
|What are you going to think about doing here Garbo?|
|Mr M positively terrified but looking stunning!!|
|The few seconds he was standing still|
|Garbo's like 'whatever'|
|What was that??????|
|I am sure it's going to eat us Garbo|
