Oh, no .

It's always rough to go through something like that. My first thought was that she may have been exposed to locoweed of some sort. I've seen similar symptoms in cattle after ingesting that.

Prayers that she'll pull through and (((((HUGE HUGS))))) if she doesn't.

I've had a horse with very similar symptoms. It is a very scary thing to see. It was colic and we ended up putting him down because there wasn't much else we could do. It was better for him. *hugs* I know it's a very difficult decision. But think about what is best for her. I hope she pulls through for you.

Thankyou all. I am so beside myself. Haven't left her side of course. The vet is gone now. She hasn't moved in one hour, standing still didn't take so much as a step for the exam after her banamine. She seems to be resting now, so far since he's tubed her nothing has come back out her nose. He says that's very unusual as when it starts it doesn't just stop? Prayers at work I hope.. she does have a gut sound here and there, still standing, still 40~44 heart rate. He couldn't re tube her to give her oil, she wouldn't swollow the tube, cause a half hour nose bleed, poor sweet girl. So its up to God and a wait and see. Feeling so helpless..
