Observing horses can teach us something new.
Exhibit A: she currently has trauma to her back left leg that caused a hematoma. Some bruising and possible muscle damage happened on the inside of the back left. The lanced area is on the front portion of the hind leg. Interesting I discovered her using the cone in this way post vet visit.
Exhibit B: Wasp we found out after this her sternum was out and probably has been out for a while. She would do this with her cone almost every day until I finally had her sternum specifically looked at and adjusted. Haven't seen her do it since!
