Equine Mutilation Syndrome

Hi Everyone,

This is my first time posting although I am not new to horses :)

I have a 7 yo standardbred gelding that has been know to have equine mutilation syndrome. No one in my area is very familiar with it. So I was wondering if someone on here might be. He is a very sweet horse and I can't imagine him wanting to hurt anyone he just enjoys hurting himself. He has been checked out by the vet and there is no other reason for his flank biting and pacing.

My problem is that I am trying to decide what to do with him. He is very spooky even if it is something he has done a thousand times, he will still spook at it.

Has anyone ever had any experience with this?

Thanks
