Update on Cali

Hi all!
So awhile ago I posted about my mare Cali and asked what could be wrong with her.
when ridden:
hates the cinch (paws, trys to laydown, pins ears, moves around)
Pins ears to leg pressure
Bucks if you kick

When being fed hay:
lowers her head
shakes head
looks at her stomach
lays down

People suggested ulcers and even the vet thought it was ulcers and so I put her on meds. Well, today she did the same thing at feeding only her full sister did it too! The other day when I asked her to move her hindquarters on the ground by using my fingers and applying pressure she kept kicking and swishing her tail, she would look around at me like 'why are you making me do this? it hurts!' but if I just swung the lead rope at her butt she would move them no problem.

Called the vet and they said its not ulcers because it would have cleared up somewhat by now. So she has an appointment tomorrow at 11.

What do ya'll think it could be now? Do you think its just chance that her full sister is doing it now too?

My girl is 3, her sister is 2


Never forgot the horse that taught you to be fearless (Braveheart RIP) the horse that taught you to stay strong no matter how bumpy the road is (Caesar) and the horse that always had to test gravity by throwing you in the air (Cali)

Sounds like typical young naughty horse behavior to me that needs more sacking out under saddle and maybe a different type of cinch or saddle.

Can you video her doing it when eating? Need to see it.
