He palpated her spine and her reactions went a bit like this:
withers: la la la
thoracic: la la coookiezzz

No really, her hind feet missed the vet by only a few inches. Yeah, not a happy horse at all.
So, Lucy will be going to Tufts in Boston for a bone scan on Monday, and the vet thinks she will probably need her SI injected. I am tired of chasing random "maybe" tests around, and I am ready to bring out the big tests. Thank goodness for insurance. I just want to get out and enjoy her again!
I am glad a vet finally listened to my concerns about her hind end. I wish we had gone this route sooner, but hey, now I know her repro system works just fine.
