Okay. I went outside like 20 minutes ago.. Did my chores. Fed the horses a little bit of hay. Then all the sudden Poncho's throat was making Funny noises. He like stopped eating.. walked away.. kinda got all week legged.. Then just was shaking his head.. I have a video of you so you can see better.
Then he was coughing.. also in the video.. and llike coughed up a bunch of liquid and some chewed hay.. watch the videos to better understand what Im saying..
Should I walk him around..
He did go and lay down.. He was just laying there.. rolled once.. got back in the sitting up.. but laying down thing.. then got up.. and now is just standing there?
Poncho is a fat lazy horses.. He normally eats all the hay.. and right now.. Sunny is getting it ALL because Poncho isnt eating.. Wierd..
When I first went out there is was fine
what could this be?
I am downloading the videos onto Photobucket right now..

From what you describes it sounds like he might have a case of choke.
My old mare does this every now and then on the rare occasion that she will eat hay.... normally i just leave her alone and check on her in about an hour and she is fine.
I have had one horse that it was no better in an hour and we had to call the vet to take care of it.
How do you feed them? On the ground? Up higher? If on the ground and he chokes on hay, I would have his teeth checked and then if that is fine I would have the vet check to make sure there isn't anything in the way on his neck (internally)
Is he better??! I'm confused. You need to get a vet out if its not coming up. Chances are its still lodged in his throat. If he refuses to eat anything, even grain, it's not up.. Posted via Mobile Device
