    [RC] fractured withers - Michelle Fink

    Does anyone have a horse with fractured spinous processes at the withers?
    Is the horse sound?  One of my rescues (2 yr. old Aralusian filly)
    apparently tried to run under a low tree branch or hay elevator when she was
    younger, and broke some wither tips.  I'm wondering if this condition is
    usually career limiting?  My vet hasn't seen this before, and I can't find
    much on the web about it.
