She's a very questionably bred Tennessee walker (cross?) but mostly twh. Lots of color breeding.

Ok..thanks! The reason I asked is because of the HYPP mutation in the stock horse breeds. So, I would safely rule that out. I'm also thinking she could have a tying up syndrome, in addition to some of the other things people have mentioned here.

Haha yeah, no hypp for her! But tying up?
Other Qh mare has pssm, and they're symptoms are nothing alike.

That really does not rule that out GotaDun. More so since she says TWH cross, but isn't sure what the cross is. Some people have crossed stock breeds with the walkers and what not...

I have to ask, are you sure she's not just scratching her belly? I hace one that looks like he can't get up when he does it, and it freaked me out the first time I saw it, but he's a pretty itchy guy.

That's actually what I thought she was doing at first, but she kinda just sits on one of her hips and circles a little. So is just always on her hip

Yea, you can't totally rule it out...but it's pretty unlikely. Most of the outcrossing is done with Paints, Apps, Arabs....not so much with TWH...YET.

You don't know that for sure. There are so many grade horses out there that you can't say for sure that any grade doesn't have the possibility of HYPP.

Actually I think maybe its the weather, maybe she has trouble in one of its legs, I really think you should get a vet
