As for your horse, she's still very young and most probably was just sleeping and didn't hear you. One of my yearlings was like that too - she fall in sleep and didn't hear anything until you actually got to the shelter and wake her up.
I did call a friend who is a vet, took her vitals and everything was normal
. I feel like an idiot because I apparently did just wake her up
For years I've owned large snakes and reptiles, and know that its usually a waste of time to go to a vet for them(even a vet who supposedly specializes in reptiles), because they seldom help the animal, and many die because of the wrong treatment
, so the solution is to talk on reptile forums, to reptile owners who've gone through it, and can help.
So if somethings wrong the first thing I think of is the forum, forgetting that equine vets DO know what they're doing, and wont hurt the animal worse.
Sorry, just wanted to explain myself a bit.
Thanks everyone for the help!
