Okay before there's any judgement on my horse caring abilities. ***I am going to call a vet. ***I just want to see if anyone had prior experiences or advice to give.
My new horse, Sassy, is 21 years old. When I got her she was overweight. She has lost some weight since then but is still overweight for her size (14.1) She is sway backed a tad bit & off balance in her hooves. All of these problems are being cared for appropriatley.
However, her sides seem to stick out right before the flank. It's hard to press on, but doesn't feel like bone. Could this just be fat? Or should I investigate further?
Thanks in advance!
