What's wrong with my mare? (While waiting for the vet to come out)
So a few weeks ago my 8 year old OTTB mare suddenly began being very irritable when going to the right. Whenever any pressure was applied to my right rein she will throw her head and stiffen up her back and fuss like crazy in discomfort. This started right before she was in heat, and is still continuing a week after. I think that she has a tooth on the right that needs looked at that may be cutting her and irritating her especially when the right rein is used, and someone else at the barn thinks that there is something wrong with her back. Since the weather is so bad here, I cannot get a vet out yet, and was just wondering if there were any ideas as to what could be wrong with her.
