It is a sad ending. Mine wasnt colicking when he went down. He's done it twice now. He's old. When he go's down they give him banamine (not for colic) and they give him adrenaline. We also give him alfalfa and water while he's down. Once I didn't think he was going to get up, it took half the day and into the night. The second time only took a few hours.....
To the OP: Welcome to the forum. I wish it was under better circumstances.
