Just wondering anyone has any ideas as to what could cause these horses to be ill. In the field my two cobs are in there is two other horse. One is a 20 month old yearling and the other is a 13 year old tb.
The 16th feb 2012 the yearling became ill once he was brought in from the field. After 40ish minutes of being in he had done 4 poos which were like water and he hadnt touched his dinner which never happens. In his stable he was laying down and getting up again the walking around a little and was very uncomfortable. The vet was called for advice and he said it could be his gut working to fast, his gut working to slow, worms or mild colic. After about an hour and half total he was almost back to normal and eating fine. He has been fine since.
The next nigh the 13 year old tb had the same simptoms without the poo but he was looking at his sides more. Same again after an hour and half he was his normal self and he to is fine now.
Just wondering if anyone has any ideas what the cause could be as I am worried about it happing again and my 2 getting it.
We also checked the field and couldnt find anything and no other horse on the yard has had it. The only time the two horse which have been ill are together is in the field
Any ideas please
