While working on Cash I felt that the performance issues Cash’s owner described could be partly related to something that happened to/with Cash in the past. She’s had him for a while and didn’t know of any significant incident, accident, or fall. Of course, we don’t know what these guys do out in the pasture or the stall at night or when we’re not looking, especially when they’re younger, but we do know this happens because it’s been documented by Gary Larson with cows. =>

As we peeled the layers off Cash during the bodywork, he did have the feel of a horse who’d had something happen in the past.
