What does it mean when a horse is groaning while lying down? Not rolling or anything but just groaning while laying. My horse was doing this tonight right before I left the barn I noticed it. I got him up, took him outside and let him eat grass to make sure he wasn't colicing. Today was his first day out after 3 days on stall rest due to an infected cut.
Please let me know what this means..
Btw, to all the people who followed my posts about his infection. I got ahold of the vet and he told me what to do. I have been soaking his leg in epsom salt water and putting neosporin on it. Yesterday, I pulled his leg out of the water and noticed some yellowish gunk coming out of a hole on the side of his leg. Right next to it was a pocket filled with puss. Today, the pocket busted. The infection is draining. I was told to look for this. The swelling is down by almost %50 and he hasn't had a fever for 2 days. The limp is gone as well. He didn't even need antibiotics.
