Why do they .....


.... always seem to roll with their heads downhill? Most of our fields are on a 1:4 / 1:5 slope & 90/100 times our ponies will have a roll with their heads downhill :eeek::eeek::eeek::eeek::eeek: Means all their abdominal contents are pressed onto their diaphragms & squeezing their lungs!
Do other ponies do this or do they do the more sensible thing & roll with their heads uphill?

Teddy rolls one side then shuffles on his bottom to do the other side! Must try to film it.

We have a very flat field now but Doug once winded himself quite spectacularly by rolling downhill :eeek:- didn't think he'd manage back up but his then field chum marched over and bit him on the nose and he promptly sprang up :heh hee::heh hee:

Yep every time. Got Tam in trouble a couple of time in his last years one field is very sloping he ended up with his head down hill and the wet ground breaking away as he tried to get up. Thanks goodness for a strong husband who manager to drag him round.

Good question, I haven't actually noticed with Mac. The field is basically flat but it's ridge and furrow. I'll take note next time.
