Is he kicking at his stomach? Trying to lay down? Looking at his stomach a lot?

Agree with the vet call. Sounds like he may have aspirated some of his grain. Is he blowing "junk" from his nose? My horse did this and it was very scary. He is fine but thought he was going to die at the time.

Ok, I am VERY sorry that made no sense at all guys lol. I was walking him and couldn't see my screen because the sun and I was crying.

He isn't making the gurgling sound anymore, and he was trying to eat grain he spilt. He seems normal, but he JUST layed down again... He's half sitting up not rolling.

My mom went to the vet to get shots to relax him (the vet can't come out) I don't remember the names.

They think colic I think choke... He's only ten months.

Should I still give him the shots?

If you aren't sure - how can the vets be sure enough to know what drugs to put in his system. If it is colic, you do not give drugs to 'relax'. You do not want to impede motility in the gut.

I would do what your vet recommends. We aren't there to evaluate your horse (of course neither is your vet) and I don't think anyone here can give you proper advice without examining your horse. Just my thoughts on it. I wouldn't want to tell you to do something that could harm your horse.

When our horses have had colic, they try to bite at their sides. They don't want you to touch their side. They have no bowel tones. They do tend to lay down and refuse to eat or drink. That is my experience.
