    Rolling and thrashing is bad, yes. They can lay down if it makes them comfortable as long as they are quiet.

    I'm very sorry for your loss. I know how it feels last year I lost my mare in the same thing as yours. She wasn't eating and couldn't get up. My vet came out to the farm and thought she had blockage, but couldn't find and in his exam. He gave us some meds and said she would be fine in the morning. When morning came I went to check on her and she was dead in her stall. It took me awhile to get over her death. It's a tragic thing to lose any horse, even more so when it is so sudden.
