Your theory has merit.  However, in my example,
according to the guidelines set forth by the AERC Vet
Committee, the horse didn't display the lameness that
would allow a vet to pull.  Now...back to your
idea...if the rider DID pull, it WOULD indeed be nice
to have a code like "RO-impending lameness".
