I know what causes sway back...but how can you exactly tell if a horse is sway back? I know with pictures like
but what about just a slight case of sway back?
I know in some pictures, Sonny "appears" to have a sway back, but I don't believe he does because in others it doesn't.
(yes I was holding the camera at an angle for some reason hehe)
I'll add more pics later...but got to run to work
He doesn't have a sway back. Well, at least not a prominent one. I think Sonny just has high withers and a steep croup. He looks good. That first picture scared me! Is that REAL?
I wanted to see if that was a real picture too. I google searched "sway back horse" in the images it was the first one.
Apparently someone saw that horse while on vacation. Poor horse :(
I don't think Sonny has a sway back at all. :)
I will have to look up the medical term but that first horse is not sway backed as we all think of it it is a spinal disorder.
Just looks like a lack of topline, not a sway back.
That's not sway back, it's called lordosis and is a spinal condition. This is sway back...
well i dont think Sonny has sway back, he looks normal.
my mare looked like she had sway back when i first bought her. her back was drooping and her stomach was too. but since shes been with me shes gotten much better. look at the difference-
I also think that Sonny doesn't have a sway back.
I know one horse who has on abvious one. I will take a picture tomorrow and post it.
Gingerr - great change. What did you do to improve her topline?
well before i bought her she was starved and left by herself for sometime so we did slow transitions like walk, trot. then w/t/c and now shes doing w/t/c and some jumping
