Old Horse, Is He Okay?
My horse kinda scared me today. When I got to the farm I went to go get him to let him out in the pasture with the other horses. We have been keeping him in a stall for the last couplle of days because of the weather. Anyway, I went to go get him and he was laying flaton his side. I didn't think much of it cause he got right up and nickered to me as soon as he heard me. After I let him out, he was standing over with the others for a while, but then he layed back down on his side. So we got him up and took him around under the shed, we started to take him back to his stall but he was trotting with Rosie and Jake so we just led them all around to their covered area. He went under, and layed back down. He just layed thid time though, not flat out on his side like before. I don't think he was colicing cause he was moving around and everything and wasn't showing any signs like biting at his stocmach or trying to roll. But then why was he laying down so much? Is it just the weather? He did the same thing last year after it snowed too. He also didn't eat all his food. What does this all mean? Also, when I say he is old, I really do mean old, as in 36 years old. Yeah, I know, wow! Anyway, thank you anyone who can help :)
