    Exclamation Will he live

    He has no broken bones or anything that my vet can see or feel. He's laying on the ground and he's trying so hard to get up, I've been out with him for so long now and I just can't stad to see him so weak, so hurt. They are talking about who will pick up his body. I say let him try to live.. He's my life. Should I just let him go?

    Is he old? Is he down and can't get up? Did he fall? Is he colicing?
    If he's just down
    Give him alfalfa, message his legs, and get some banemine in him....

    He's 3, and my vet just had no hope. I said leave him alone and he'll live, I know this horse well, even though I knew him for less than a month. I was yelling for the not to put him down but they did it anyway, there's nothing I can do now. What was wrong was someone left his halter on (Probably one of my friends) and I wasn't feeding last night so I couldn' check all the horses, he got stuck and when I got out for morning feed he was exhausted, I took the halter off and he just fell to the ground after a few moments. He couldn't get up, his legs weren't broken but something was wrong. Nobody knows, and now he's gone. When I made the first post I was just freaking out, I didn't think they would really put him down, but I wasn't sure.. And now I know, they would. The best horse here was his name, and he really was the best horse there.

    OH.. this is the horse that had the "running into things" problem isnt it?! It took me a while to figure that out

    I hope to God he didn't have EPM like I thought (and posted on that thread) It almost sounds like he had a seizure. That's what ended up getting the horse I knew with EPM. She had the same symptoms your horse did... running into things, then when she went down for the last time she was too feeble to get up and had suffered a stroke =/

    I'm very dissapointed with your vet for not giving you guys even the slightest opinion on what could be wrong with your horse. Is it the same vet that couldnt tell how old your horse was?

    To those who are unfamiliar with her original post on this horse.. here's the link:

    Running into things.

    Im sorry for your loss =/
