New 2 year old colt, just came last week. He's settled in great and is loving it here. Then I went to feed him and my other horse at lunchtime today, I found him laying down almost up against the barn, breathing hard and kinda hot. He got up as soon as I asked but he was just acting 'blah'. He was acting normal after about 30 minutes so my trainer and I jumped on him and walked and occasionally trotted him around for about 30 minutes. I don't know what it did but he was fine for the next 2 hours. I went down around 4pm and gave him half a dose of wormer because it's that time and I was going to give him the other half tomorrow. Anyway, I went back down around 7 and he was breathing hard and laying down again but not rolling. I got him up and walked for a minute then he cooled down and was back to his normal self, begging for food and was mad when I wouldn't give him anything but hay. I left him in the stall because he's weird and loves his stall. Go back down at 11:30 and he's down again, breathing hard and sweating. Got him up and he was shifting his feet and swishing his tail but that was pretty much it. I would walk him for minute when he would start acting uncomfortable, then he was fine. He did not want to move after he would feel better. I'm trying to find something on the internet and I'm finding all these different things it could be.
- What's getting me is he's been urinating and pooping all day with no problem. I can poke all around his belly and he is fine with it. Once he gets cooled down, he's fine.Couple hours later, he does it again.
