As part of a lengthy lameness investigation which I won’t get into here, I ended up with an X-Ray of my horses’s sacrum that shows the “top parts” of her S4/S5 vertebrae fusing. Those two vertebrae lean together, fused at the chunky top parts, while the rest curve gently towards the tail as normal, spaces in between the top parts.
I realize the sacrum itself is fused, which makes googling “fused equine sacral vertebrae” or similar an exercise in futility. I will post X-ray when I get the CD. Anyone have experience with or heard of this type of abnormality?
