Re:mild huffing going on….


Morning update.

This may sound odd, but is *ahem* "Heavy breathing" sometimes a courtship behaviour? I checked the horses this morning when i fed them their morning meal, and the huffing is reduced (although not gone) but my male’s abdomen has suddenly swollen slightly. So now I’m more worried……preggers male? Or something more insidious??? His activity level this morning was low….he normally comes right up to the glass to greet the food tube, but this morning he stayed near the bottom, only came over to the feeding station to grab a shrimp or three.

I did a full visual checkup on both reidis this morning also. I see no evidence of sores, lesions, any skin abnormality. Eye mobility is good, they’re constantly swiveling around looking out for food. Their tails are both fine, strong grip…for a 4 inch horse, I suppose. So I’m still a worried papa over here! 🙁
