I don't think he's foundering. We're there nats? And where was the twitching? In his chest? Or more in his esophagus area? I would say it's not anything to worry about though because he still has a good appetite. If it was in the esophagus after he ate some he might have been choking. If you're worried about him eating to fast (which can cause choking) throw a couple (or a few) of largish rocks in his bucket and it will slow him down. Small ones work too if he has a brain and isn't going to just swallow them.

Crazy people don't really loose their mind, it just becomes something more entertaining!

Truth is a mass appeal to something.

Yesterday for the first time we put the horses on pasture. They stayed out about 30minutes.

This morning, Karma seemed quite anxious (as usual) to eat breakfast, except he appeared as though he was having muscle spasms above his legs/chest.

It was very cold, after having a nice couple weeks, it went down and frosted. Could he have been cold?

I fed him his hay/went back in about 1/2 hour and he was no longer twitching. Maybe he overloaded on grass? I know when I eat too much one day, the next I am starving.

Should I be concerned?
