Mare with arthritis or attitude?
Hello, I have a 12 year old mare who I got from a rescue about 7 months ago. Our first two months were very good, she showed no signs of being lame. Then randomly she started limping and was diagnosed with arthritis. She has been on a daily dose of bute and some days she does great while others she is in pain. The hard part is knowing the difference. I see her out in pasture playing with the herd, and then when I take her in and saddle her, or work her, or even touch her hip area, she tries to bit and pins her ears. I need some advice!
