When a previous horse of mine foundered, He stopped moving, continued to eat, but couldn't move - it looked as if he was having extreme difficulties putting weight on his front feet, and refused to walk on hard or rock covered ground. Both the farrier and the vet confirmed that he had foundered, and luckily we acted quick enough and got a treatment plan worked out. If you suspect your horse is foundering, I would call either a vet or a farrier.
