She looks wormy to me. In the barrel racing picture, she has a ton of hair and super dull coat. Plus the lack of weight/muscle.

Something appears to be wrong with this horse. Whether its food, or worms, or another disease.

Does your friend know your posting pictures of her online?

I have her permission guys. The first picture is from summer of . . . 11? 12? The second one is in the winter sometime. I'm not sure. If she had something, it was never noticeable. Just really I couldn't care less about anything other than my friend sitting at that vet right now :/

My friend just went through this with her horse. They put him on Oraquin-10 (I believe it is experimental) and he recovered very rapidly after that.

How is the mare's salt consumption? Inadequate salt intake can cause a raft of problems. If her only source is a lick, you need to provide loose salt in a pan out of the weather. Because a lick is designed for the raspy bovine tongue, horses do not ingest adequate amounts because of the licking soring the tongue. With our change of weather and big winter coats my horses are laying down a lot to cool off and definitely a bit lethargic. My horses haven't experienced a major shedding as yet so their coats are thick pretty thick.

I was loaned a retired 2nd level dressage horse that had recovered from EPM. He was amazing. I kept him a year and rode him. He did well. Then after a year, he started developing symptoms again. His owner came and took him home. He was pasture sound after his second round of treatment but to unstable to ride.

This was many years ago and treatments have come along.

She didn't catch it early enough, since there isn't a point in reversing what damage is done, the mare over night fell a few times and couldn't stand. Her owner said before she fell it was like she forgot how to walk all over again and just stumbled around before she fell. Right now she is down, and hasn't been able to get up. The vet refuses to do any time of treatment until the results come in on Tuesday. Her owner says, "When I went to go get my treatments, I was in a lot of pain. This is her whole body, I don't want her to suffer."
They're making the decision to put her down so Fudge doesn't have to suffer anymore. Her legs are pretty scraped up from falling or struggling.

Its a hard judgment to make and it sucks- but its better than having her suffer.

They were making the choice to put her down today, but I guess prayers have worked. They got a call this morning and said their mare is a fighter. She was up this morning and fighting everyone. Her owner is very stuck between putting her to sleep or letting her fight. They're waiting on the results that come tuesday. The mare got back up at 6 AM this morning and hasn't gone back down. I have no idea what to think of the situation in this point.
