So my TB has OCD and loves to do circles in his paddock(we can't keep him in the barn anymore because he's run a circle into the mats... :/) and they were like brand new, only about a year old, and anyways, I can tell its bad on his joints and his paddock footing is a little 'thick' and hard on him already -forgot to tell the cleaning lady to stop dumping in there... oops- but anyways, I know it will stop when we get to harder work, but does anyone have suggestions? (at the moment we block his path with his feeder but he still does a bigger circle) He doesn't mind toys and he's not nervous and doesn't get the separation anxiety so sticking a goat in with him does absolutely nothing but get the goat walking in circles ^^(or stand there watching him walk in circles) And it could be grazing but even when he had 'all day alfalfa' he would take a chunk and walk a circle, take a chunk and walk a circle. He mostly does it when he's anticipating his goodies... he gets to weaving in the cross ties when he's bored. And NO IT'S NOT VISUAL STIMULATION trust me it's being bored because I do it myself ^^ and he only does it when I take for ever in the crossties and he does it with his eyes closed. I think weaving is more of a comfort(like a hug) than a visual stimulation. Anywho, cut to the chase, any tips to prevent stall walking??
