    She's a 12 year old Tennessee walker (cross maybe?)
    We've had her since she was 6, no previous injuries. She's up to date on all shots and worming. As well as vet checks, teeth ad farrier:
    We have an awesome nutritionist, her diet is great.
    The vaccines and such don't seem to have any interference, as she's been fine before.

    To get up, it takes her a couple tries before she fully wants to use her back end fully, but she eventually will. But once she's up, she's totally normal in every way. Her coordination and muscle are both still great. Adb she's not laying down anymore than usual.
    But I can't say too much because I've only seen it happen 2 times.

    Believe me I know nothing about horses. Just saying...When I can't get up something hurts. I have an Appy who is 41. When we got her she had a spinal injury so my promise to her was she would never be ridden again. If she has back problems they don't "go away". She will continue to need adjustments as you call them and she will probably get worse. When she gets up she normal, not really, she's just up. The pain may not be bad enough to limp but she's not better once she gets up. I hope you find out whats wrong. I just gage by if it were me with back pain, ear pain, foot pain. Animals don't show symtoms until the discomfort becomes great. Good luck.

    Has the vet been to see your horse yet?

    The vet is checking her in an hour.
    And yeah, it could be something like that. I'll see and update you guys when I know.

    Very good news!
    She needed a big adjustment on her pelvis and shoulder and back.
    But the vet thinks that's it.

    Well that's a relief, it could've been much worse :).

    I know!! I felt like I could finally breath. It's relieving to hear her joints being cracked around sometimes hahah as terrible as that sounds.
