| || | Dislocated Hip??
A friend of mine, who has a pony very close to me-Owen-came home one day to find him sort of crab-wlaking on his back legs. She seems to think it may be a disloacted hip. He will graze, but not often-which is weird for him-and when standing still, he crosses his back legs and leans on his left hip, and tenses his back so much that there is absolutely no dip in his back. He's a welsh cob pony, so there's always a small dip in his back. He really doesn't like it when I touch his back, as if its a fly and is very sensitive now about it. She has a chiropractor coming to see him, just wondering whether someone has had a horse or knows of someone who had a horse of the same. Thanks.
