I just called my mom and she did confirm only one pile of poop today. I told her to leave it in the stall because I want to see it. (She lives next door) I told her to go give him a little hay. She said he has not drank any water either. It's so hard to tell when you have an already super quiet horse how bad he's feeling. But he's definitely not right. I get off work in another hour and a half. I'll take his temp and then probably give the vet a call. It is hot here, in the 90's.
I have not given any banamine because I wasn't sure it was a colic type situation but I'm starting to think that may be the case.... I did change from Purina brand pellets to Southern States but that was about 15 bags ago...? (2 or 3 weeks)....
Riley and Blue have a paddock together, they are in the padock during the day with 2 open stalls. I turn them out at night but they can still go back into their paddock and their stalls. I actually took him to an inside stall this morning so that I could see how much he pooped through out the day. I don't have any fans in the barn but I could bring on down. That's a good idea.
