[RC] sore backs again... - Cindi Hein
Well, this is so strange! It has been four hours since I got home from the
training ride when my horse had his sore back. Went out to feed and ran
fingers down his back - figuring he was still sore and he wasn't!
One finger at a time down and I put pretty good pressure and nothing - he's
not a bit sore.
Now, that doesn't make sense to me. My back is still sore on the left
I don't know if I meantioned it or not but, he did get shod three days ago
by another farrier. This farrier was his first farrier and then I bought
the horse and had a different farrier work on him until he forged so bad he
starting pulling front shoes off and so I just now went back to the original
farrier. Confused now?? LOL.
Anyway, he doesn't forge anymore but, I did notice today that he kept
bending to the right. When I changed diagonals to the right one, he
straightend out but, still wanted to bend to the right. If I go onto the
left diagonal, he would really bend to the right and go down the trail
At first I thought something was behind him, I stopped and looked -
nothing. And anyway, if something was behind him, he would have bent not
only to the right but to the left as well to try and look.
So, I left a message for my farrier to call me so I can pick his brain to
see if he can figure this out.
What's so strange is that his back isn't a bit sore right now - only four
hours later. Unless he got tight muscles and they loosened up???
any ideas - anyone?
