Curling/curving tailbone?

This is a past issue but I'm wondering if it relates to the multitude of issues coming into light with Amber.

After the hock injection failed to do anything but improve her soundness in her legs, not her discomfort under saddle (even after checking and adjusting her saddle fit), we finally decided that despite what the vet said, it's got to be back soreness. We are planning to have the chiropractor out soon, and according to her Amber's issues are classic signs of back and/or hip pain. She is visibly quite sound in her legs, and I feel the hock issue was from compensating for the back issue.

Anyway, I remembered something this morning, and I want some opinions on it. It might be nothing, but it might shed some light on things.

When I first purchased Amber, in December 10, her tailbone always had a weird "curl" to it. The tip poked outward and curled to the side. It didn't seem to cause her pain, and I just took it was just a weird thing about her.

I can't remember exactly when it went away, but her tailbone is normal now. What could that have been and could it in any way be linked to the current issues at hand? Which we will I dearly hope have some insight on soon!
