Is this horse still alive? How old is this horse?
My guess would be congestive heart failure. Are the legs stocked up. Is the fluid in the belly inside the abdomen or is it ventral edema outside of the belly muscles? If it is ventral edema [that pits upon pressure with a finger], then I am betting on congestive heart failure. If it is, then there is not much you can do. We have put a couple of older horses down when that was the case.
