    I thought he was dead.

    It happened yesterday, I went to go feed Joe like every other day and as I got to the stables my heart sunk to the pit of my stomach and I ran as fast as I could to the paddock to see my boy lying down in awkward pose with this paddock mate looking down on.him.


    Being 15 the first thought that popped into my mind was he's dead. I screamed at him to get up, but he stayed on the ground, I ran to get his halter and as I got closer to him he lifted his head, saw me and got to his feet and neighed wanting his dinner. All I could do was stand there and burst into tears, I was so close to losing what I loved the most.. It was the worst feeling but it proves how much love we have for our horses.

    Been in the same situation. Get to the paddock and my mares flat out not moving. I called her and no response. Walked half way across the paddock calling and still no response. I got all the way to her and she was still flat out, eyes rolled back and twitching. I got that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach. I said her name once more and she woke up from whatever dream she'd been having and stood up and spooked at me lol. I don't worry so much with her now.

    I hear ya.. Really scary =( That happened to my sister's horse at a show, he layed down on his back with his feet in the air. We all thought he was dead, until my dad went in a kicked him and then he sprang up. Glad to here he was okay.

    Has happened to me a few times.. Scares the crap out of you every time it happens. But it's been cooler out every time I've found Hunter laid out and he was just sun bathing.. Scared me because he's not usually one to lay down

    Just check for rising tummy! Other way will only give you ulcers.
