sporatic kicking

I have a 25 year old appy/ quarter cross mare. Recently she has started to kick out periodically. She will be standing either in the stall or pasture just hanging out and resting than suddently flatten her ears back and kick out at nothing. At first i thought , bugs, but than she started to do it more often. She does have mild to moderate arthritis but it does not seem to be hindering her movement. she also does not seem to be in any noticable amount of pain. Any advice would be appreciated as I now live in NY and the horse is out in CA. Thanks Sierra

hmm that is odd - have you rung a vet to see what they say?

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ~William Shakespeare

I'd probably get a vet out just to be safe.
Where in NY are you located?
