Not to be mean, but why would you give a foal grain?

I don't understand your comment. I would think at 10 months he certainly would need to be on some kind of feed.

They said it's to help make a bowl movement.. and then a pain killer. He said choke is uncommon in young horses... He has gut sounds now. He may have the first time I checked but I was kind of panicked. He's standing without me out there now, I think he's just tired. No biting at his sides, no more rolling. No more gurgling when he breathes. I think it was minor choke, do they lay down when they have choke?

We grain our foals. They have a creep feeder with mom and then Youth until they are two.

Anyone? I think he's fine, but I am keeping a close eye on him though. I already have the shots, should I go ahead and give them as a precaution?

If it were me...and I am in no way telling you what to do....I would continue to monitor the horse for symptoms. If he acts ok and will eat and drink, I would hold off on the shots. Make sure he is in a place where you can see if he has a bowel movement or not.

Okay, that is pretty much what I'm doing now. He's in a small dry lot right behind my house, I can see him from my sliding glass door. I'm about to move his water, but should I let him lay down right now? He isn't rolling.

I would get him up. Just to be safe. Until you know that he is truly OK and not just wanting to take a nap.

Ok, he's up now. And drinking, I gave him a handful if hay that he ate. How long before I can be sure?

Need to see if he can have a bowel movement. If he does that, he should be good....at least that is what my vet told me before. I sure hope your baby is OK. I know how scary it can be!!!
