Thanks for the article Annnie31.

There aro no equine chiropractors or massagers in my country :(

The article says:

The amount of strain pelvic muscle attachments are subject to is
Indicated by side-tears, which occur around the outer hip bone
Of the pelvis and quite often develop 1-2cm calcified marbles as
A result of segments of the muscle tendinous attachment being
Literally torn off the bone. These ‘marbles’ can be quite mobile, are remarkably common and do not seem to bother the horse but are a good indication of the presence and severity of strain to which a horse has been subjected. The marbles themselves do not require treatment, just
Any unresolved muscle attachment tears associated with them. The tears around the upper tips of the pelvis (tuber sacrale or hunters bump) are similar in nature.
It doesn't seem to me that my vet was talking about this kind of calcification. When I asked him if her condition is similiar to kissing spine he said it's much worse and this marbles don't sound that horrible. If he thought this marbles when he was talking about the calcium he would be worried about the tear, not the calcification, wouldn't he?

I was also reading that calcification occurs as a result of arthritis. It was a knee example and I can't find any informations on calcification of sacr. Joint in a 'non-marbles' way.

I took few videos. What do you think? Worse, better?

I don't think she's okay. Anyway, vet wants to try some other medications and we're getting them in Thursday. I wanted to take vids to compare before and after medication.

(she spooked in the end :P)

It looks to be somewhat better but the snow on the ground make it difficult.

The left hind still looks a bit off to me.

Thanks :) I see it too. She is still dragging her hind feet. Vet said her right leg was worse than left, but now this changed...

I hope new meds will help.

Vet said I can ride her!
For 15 minutes in a walk for 2 weeks, then for half an hour.

His opinion is that she is getting better, but she won't be completly fine ever again. He says she will be rideable and I only do light trail rides, so it is going to work out.

He gave me something for joint flexibility (I think it's for arthritis) and in a month she'll get injections again if she'll need them.
