well I don't think they're hives, they are long and tubular and just behind the girth line on the bottom of her belly, they split where her rib cage meets on the belly. Hives seem to be more of spots and like bug bites and this is tubular and about say... 4 inches long and 2 inches wide on both sides. When I pushed on them there was no sign of pain or discomfort and they were hard, not fluid like, just felt like pushing on her normally, there was nothing out of the ordinary. With her change in attitude it worried me after I thought about it. She off her hay, or almost off her hay, but eats the grain like normal, she was showing her normal signs of energy this morning, but last night seemed very jumpy and uneasy. I was thinking it was a bruise or bump, like maybe she kicked herself but with no pain I doubted it, Then I though colic because she showed evidence of nipping at her sides, but no rolling and she is pooping normally. With her also not drinking so much it worries me because she could get dehydrated. Any ideas on this guys?!
