    Sending positive thoughts :)

    Can you you take him for a ride in the trailer?
    Horses always pass gas and poop while in the trailer.

    Thanks once again! I have been really unimpressed with the vet on call tonight-but more on that

    My regular vet who I love is out of town but he called my cell phone as soon as he heard. Recommended I get some salt in him to encourage drinking. Mixed some salt with water and Gatorade and have been forcing that in him with a syringe. He's been peeing but no poop

    Tried to get him on the trailer for the ride idea but he wanted no part of that so I didn't force the issue. He usually loads fine so I'm not sure what's up with that. He is interested in grass now and I let him graze for a few bites every once in a while. Walking him every 20 mins or so trying to get things moving. No luck yet!

    He finally pooped! Not a lot but enough to give me peace of mind to grab a few hours of sleep before my 8am. I will be back and checking on him early in the morning.

    This whole thing was so sudden! I left him at 5 and he was doing great. My friend called at 630 saying he was down and needed help. Asking for prayers to get him through the rest of the night. Thank you all for your support through this :) I was trying to remain calm but I was a nervous wreck on the inside
