    Tiny- It started yesterday. He's not collicing I watched forever today looking for signs of anything like that and yes last I checked he was drinking and eating actually he was eating great while I was out at the barn grazing like everything! The Main thing is breathing and to me it seems like he's sweating differently than the other horses.
    Horsesaremypasson- Im hoping that its just allergies and I will definably let you guys know what the vet says!

    Ok, good to hear it's not a colic episode, as far as you can tell.

    It could be some allergies from the high pollen count, we've had one that had coughing and wheezing for the first time this year and lots of runny noses with that yucky yellow powder stuck to it. Its suppose to be bad here for the next couple weeks and you're just a state over so I'm sure it's not much better there. It's probably just the pollen, might just need an antihistamine to help get through the worst of it and then he'll be good as new :) good luck with the vet!

    Good News the vet came today to check Shaggy and his heart rate and temp were normal however his respiratory rate was twice what it should be which means he's working a little to hard to breath but the vet said its most likely the high pollen count and might be something that will happen with him every spring from now on. Also he and Blaze both got their shots and Shaggy got wormed some my guys are good to go and my nerves are at rest!

    I'm glad he's okay! Have you considered a respiratory supplement like Cough Free or SmartBreathe to help him out? I think it would be a good idea!

    Didn't think of supplements ! I'll have to ask the vet about them. He said that it'll mostly likely go away when whatever is blooming that's causing it is done blooming.
