She is the only one of six horses to be sick & my baby! Can someone help us please!?

If this is real, you need to get a vet out for blood work instead of accepting guesses for your money. Be prepared to spend a LOT of money on this horse. A quick fix on a free forum isn't going to cut it.
Did any of these vets give you any treatment advice or medications? What have you been doing thus far to counter the symptoms? One guessed it was the liver? Why not find out for sure if this is your baby?
If it is not a common sun burn and you are not willing to fork out the money it takes to get this horse better, be prepared to give the animal to someone who can or put it down. Don't let it suffer due to lack of funds.
