Did my horse have a seizure??!
Tonight, (April,15) Me and my mom were in the kitchen talking when she looked out and saw my pony Baylee (Please note: She is 26 years old) Was laying out flat on the ground. You could tell she had been rolling because there was a flat spot on the ground where she had been.
I looked out to check on her and noticed she was almost making twitching -like movements. I thought she was sleeping until my 5 year old mare walked over to Baylee like she was worried. The twitching had gotten a little stronger...I really don't know how to explain it..
I knew something wasn't right so I went out there, calling her name she nickered but didn't move. After about 2 minutes the twitching stopped but she hadn't gotten up. Going into the pen, I had gotten about 5 feet away from her-calling and trying to see if she would move. Her eyes were open --For about 5 seconds I thought she was dead until she suddenly whinnied at me and lifted her head before getting up. She was a little wobbly and Her heart was beating fast when I rubbed her.
Please, What happened to her?? I'm terrified she had a seizure and I'm afraid I will happened again when I'm at school- I've had her since I was in 2nd grade and I'm half way through my freshman year in high school.
Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated!
