I'm sure almost everyone knows about my lovely paint mare. Well last summer when I had the vet out to check out her random skin issue, we found something up with her top line. I don't know if i'll even be able to ride her anymore. I don't know if it is an old injury or a serious condition yet. All so far that i've figured out (without my current ignorant vets help), is that when I go to mount she flinches, and drops herself almost 4 inches. And when you run your hand down her spine, just past where we found the muscle change (as you could call it), about 3-4 vertebra before her pelvis/point of hip, she flinches. I can't find anything about anything like this in any of my veterinary handbooks. I'm so heartbroken over it, I really wanted her to become a nice show horse, and trail buddy. I do have another vet i'm going to consult and have her come and check her out (as me and the other are done). I just don't know how to take this, but no matter what she'll have a forever home with me.
P.S. No my current vet did not tell me what it could possibly be.
