My mare has been getting crankier and crankier about saddling and riding. I thought it was just an attitude, but the other day I noticed on her back, like on either side of her spine, little "bumps". Maybe the size and diamter of a pea. I tried to sort thru one--see if it was dirt or sweat that had stuck She turned around and got mad so I let them be. I figured they were fly bites. But thinking about it..Its not hardly fly season yet.
Today, my dad just noticed them again and asked me what they are.
Tomorrow morning I guess I will bust out the trusty oster clippers and shave around them and see..But til then..HAS ANYONE HAD A HORSE GET BUMPS AROUND THERE? She didnt have them in the winter. And they apparently make her sore
