Hi I've just brought my cob in from my pasture because I thought she was showing signs of being unwell, she was lying down quite a lot, thought the worst, laminitis,but there was no warmth in hooves, no erratic pulse just quite a solid neck ridge. I've had her stabled for two days now and she's back to her perky little self and standing munching on her hay albiet meagre rations wich I was advised, what puzzles me is her neck ridge, you think she had been pumping iron at the gym! When you run your fingers along it it feels lumpy, no heat and doesnt seem to pain her, im going to give it another day and get vet to check her over. She's standing fine letting me lift her hooves and walking fine. Has anyone had a horse or pony with these lumps before? They actualy feel a bit like feeling over a fat covered spinal column!
