Horses tongue

I noticed my horse was backing way off the bit on Monday in the arena. Just thinking this is another one of her curve balls, I didn't put much thought into it other than I'd have to work on my forward.

I came out to see her today and noticed her tongue was a dark color. I thought maybe she had gotten into something that died her tongue (no matter how odd) since she seemed perky and took the bit just fine...she also accepted treats fine and hand grazed without a problem. But then I grew more concerned and took some pictures for an opinion.

Now that I'm home and have reviewed the pictures, I'm starting to think something might be seriously wrong. I'm thinking of going back out.

Here are 3 pictures from today. After reviewing one if them, it looks like something might be wrapped around her tongue?! Please comment. Pictures in the next post.

I wonder if eating lots of dandelions would do that?

There aren't any dandelions in the pasture. There are loads of buttercups though.
