So I am currently a junior in college. I moved my pony, Zoe, up to college with me for the first time this year. She has been at the new place about a month. The past couple days have been so stressful. I have a big exam in a couple hours and I just got a call from my trainer saying my pony seems a little under the weather. I had noticed when I went to see her last night that there was some grain left in her feed bucket but not a lot. I just lunged her the past two days in the indoor and she had seemed pretty slow [something quite out of character for her], but I didn't think too much of it and planned to ask my trainer tomorrow if she was the same way when I went out to the barn.
Anyway, my trainer said she seemed maybe a little colicy this morning. She picked at her grain and didn't eat much hay and she has been laying down quite a bit. She gave her just a little banamine this morning, but she said she didn't seem to change much. She took her temperature with a couple different thermometers to be sure and if anything, it seemed low. So she put a blanket on her but she said she wasn't shivering or anything. She also said she definitely has sounds in her stomach so that's good.
I'm just freaking out. I'm at a new place. At my old barn, I was so close with the owner [she owned Zoe before me] and trusted her completely. Being on my own is scary and this is the first time I have really had to deal with my pony being sick and I just want to have some reassurance. My trainer said it doesn't seem anything bad enough to call the vet yet because the vet wouldn't be able to do anymore.
As I said, I have an exam in my night class which is completely out of my focus now. But I can't get down there til tonight because of it. Any advice/comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My trainer is highly respected around this area and is so knowledgeable so I trust her but I don't know if I should ask that the vet comes out.
Thanks so much
