    Hurt stomach and leg!

    Earlier today I saw my horse. And she was favoring one leg and limping. Now if you touch towards her teets on her stomach she lays her ears back and bites at the air. What could be causing this? A kick? So we decided to put her on stall and pen rest, so she won't work it too much. What could be wrong?

    You are aggravating her more than likely. And she has no respect for you either I would imagine.

    Have you cleaned between her teets? Just like geldings and studs, mares need to be cleaned too; or it could just be what meljean said.
    And you should figure out whether its her flank, her stomach, or her teets. Starting multiple threads concerning the same thing will not get you more answers, it's annoying and takes up cyber-space. Call your vet if you really want to know if it's something mental or physical.

    No one is 'stalking you'. geesh. YOU came HERE and asked for advice. Then you post this same problem all over the place but when you keep getting advice you do not want to hear you cry about it. So if If your horse is limping, Call the vet to get your horse looked at.

    Who's "we"....your parents? Your trainer? Your barn manager and/or owner?

    What could be wrong? Call a vet and have one come out....he/she will answer your question. That's what they do for work.

    Oh good grief! You've gotten advice on this on the other thread you started on the same issue. If she's limping get the vet out to see her. If she's not limping and is just being annoyed with you start doing some training regarding respecting you.

    PS...no one is stalking you....cry wolf a few more times. You put up multiple threads on the same issue and then cry stalking? Perhaps you should figure out how discussion boards work.....you post a question, you get answers from a variety of people with a variety of experience levels in different disciplines and then you apply what you have learned. You don't post a question, get answers from a variety of people with a variety of experience levels in different disciplines and then decide you didn't like what you got so post an new thread on the same thing.

    If the horse isn't hurt (and no, they do not "hide the pain") then you likely have a behavior problem which means you need to either figure out how train better behavior in your horse or have the reining trainer you are supposedly apprenticed to do some training for you (and plan on paying him for it).

    I am sorry with this thread/account. My "friend" started it off of my email address, how she got my email is beyond me. I am very sorry with her behavior. I have just realized that she had this account, and am very displeased with it. I have reviewed what she has said. And I understand that you are all realistic people, and I thank you for letting her see the truth. I am sorry for all the trouble that has happened on here, and hope that it can be forgiven upon me of her behavior.
