I would say call a vet, and I do have to point out that you are doing it again. You did it with your friends horse as well. The "its life or death NOW NOW NOW" Not giving all the information, and hyping everyone up. How bad it is really. What have you done to help figure out what is wrong. It sounds to me like he's just sunbathing, enjoying the weather, and he's asleep so when something does make a noise he's jerking to, because that's what prey animals do. A slow response time generally means the horse is then dead in the wild. Is he sweating? Is he breathing hard aside from his occasional rolling? Is he just rolling, or thrashing/rolling violently? Have you actually gone out and tried to get him up or are you just watching him from inside the house?

Good, now get off the internet and go take care of your horse. Keep him walking and monitoring his vitals. If he looks stressed or his vitals are off we can't help you and you need to call a vet.

Ok...I hate being the cranky one in the group but really? How many of these threads is Gus going to start about a horse that obviously needs a vet yet Gus has no intention of calling said vet. If your horse is colicing, call a freaking vet.

corinowalk, I totally agree.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

Sorry but

Call a vet or just sit on the computer while you watch your horse suffer.
