Sore, stiff neck can't lift it over whithers.
My 2 year old filly has a very sore neck. I had my friend looked at her today and we figured out where the pain is coming from. Its right at her throat latch. Pretty much were her Esophagus starts. She was fine this morning but this afternoon I saw her, and she couldn't lift her head past her whithers and was very uncomfortable when we her touching her neck. She did lift her head and bend her neck to both sides but was in real pain when she did it.She did eat her grain when we were there. There would be no way for her to catch anything from another horse, since she has never left the property and no other horses have been around mine in a few years. I'm just hoping she scraped her throath on the inside and its just painful to move her neck around. If she doesn't improve by morning a trip to the vets is planed.
Anyone else every had anything like this happen to your horses??
