My mare is usually never crabby and you can't ever really tell if she's in heat. Yesterday I went to get on bareback and when I put my hands on her butt and shoulder and tried to hop on she turned to bite me, so I got down and felt along her back and all the way right along the muscles runni g the length of her back seemed a little sore (when I put pressure on it she throws her head up, pins her ears a little and flares her nostrils). My friend suggested she was in heat but as I said earlier she isn't moody when she's in heat. Also when I rode her a couple days ago my friend said she had a slight limp in her back leg (don't remember which one), but her hoof didn't have anything unusual (no rocks/heat/thrush). Anybody have a suggestion on what her issue is? I don't ride heavily at all, we only walk and trot for short periods of time.
