    Sounds like colic, and what seems sudden to us, may not be for horses, they could be dealing with discomfort for hours before they start exhibiting signs of distress.

    First, I'd talk to BO after what happened. Economy is tough, and I'm sure BO can find another -responsible- manager in no time.

    As for signs, if something REALLY worry you or horse is acting very strange call your vet rather then getting opinions from non-professionals (medical-wise) around.

    Hello...
    I absoultey agree with what the others said! This Barn manager is totally out of line. How disrespectful!
    As the others already stated it does ound like it could be colic, and if I were in your position I would call the vet.
    I would not wait to move my horse...I would get him/her out of there if the Barn Manager does not change...
    Best of Luck!!

    A boarding facility is a business, just like any other. They should be concerned about you taking your business elsewhere. Treating ANYONE like that is rude and inexcusable, not to mention to someone whose business you are attempting to earn. Many boarding facilities believe that once you move your horses in, they can treat you however they want, but I for one won't hesitate to move my horses if someone treats me like that.

    Get your girl out of there, or talk to the barn OWNER about the attitude this guy gave you. You know your horse, and you know when something isn't right.
