My weanling was tied up and decided to act totally out of character. She pulled and fought the post and I couldn't get close enough to untie her. Her neck is now popping up near her poll. How serious is it??
I would x-ray the neck due to the incident and the new popping. My horse's neck pops and I have not x-rayed it, but my vet and chiropractor are not concerned about the popping. I might x-ray it some day out of curiosity.
CALL A VET – ask their advice, they will tell you how to proceed.
I can tell you MY neck started popping after an accident – that is because ligaments in my neck were damaged.
There is no way for us to know if it is a big deal or not. A vet will probably be able to exam and give you an idea of how to proceed. It could be a minor strain, or you could be dealing with broken unstable bones.
CALL A VET – maybe anti-inflammatory are in order – a vet should be able to tell you – maybe xrays are in order – a vet will be able to tell you.
I am not one of those people that runs to the vet for every little thing. But some things, like eyes, potential splinal problems etc need a vet asap.
