Oh no, Fly! Both you and Rick are in my thoughts and prayers. Good luck, and please keep us posted.

Can't offer anything but prayers for you

Hope vet can sort anything out, or people can give ideas!

What's his breeding? He doesn't have any draft in him, does he?

I hate to just toss out ideas when the vet is coming. First thing that comes to mind is EPM but there could be a lot of different things that could cause that symptom. Even something as simple as slipping on ice or falling in the pasture.

Don't get too stressed until you see the vet. Got my fingers crossed for you both!
