whats the problem?

So I was out doing some round pen stuff with Ice today...we started out lunging, and then ended up working on his side passing. I noticed that while he was trotting, his tail was unusually high, and cocked to the right. Upon inspection of his back, I did find some tiny lumps that may be his back out of alignment a little bit, but it was nothing serious. I talked to the BO and the trainer on-site, and the trainer said that he hadn't been doing anything weird while in turn out, but the BO did mention that his stall neighbor and girlfriend happened to be in heat. I also noticed that he dropped more than usual....I'm lucky to have him drop in front of me once a month (not to pee) and today he dropped three times!

So, could it be a back issue, or is he just being studly? He was no easier or harder to handle than usual, but when someone called out from the mare pasture (I'm assuming its his buddy Kylie) he completely tuned me out and looked in her direction for a minute.
