I've been at my new home for barely two weeks and problems are already coming. My rescue horse Sal, who was between 5 & 10 years old, just passed away suddenly. The vet can not figure out what cause him to pass but he recommened I have my water, feed, and grain checked. Naturally I followed his advice, I even had the air tested, and everything came back normal, nothing out of the ordinary or unusual. I even had a sample of Sal's manure checked just in case he got into something, even though I check the pastures multiple times for posinous plants. Before Sal passed I noticed the horses acting very odd, doing things they had never done before. They would go from grazing to doing a full gallop around the pasture, not like they were playing but like something may've spooked them. After seeing this happen a few times I got some cheap cameras that have nightvision and set them up around the pasture. I looked it over and I can't see anything that could be causing it. In the morning when I would go feed them breakfast and put them in the pasture I noticed sweat on them, like they had been pacing most of the night. Now I close the doors to keep critters, or people out, and also to give the horses some additional warmth. I installed one of the outdoor cameras inside the barn at an angle where I could see all the stalls. Upon reviewing this I found that not only were the horses pacing but they also seemed to be trying to get out of there stalls, like something has them so scared that they want to get out. Sal seemed to be the worst one out of the group. The following night I set up an old baby monitor that my sister let me borrow and, along with the camera, I found nothing abnormal except the horses. I've never had this problem with a horse before and it is starting to worry me because on of my horses is totally blind so naturally I'm worried about her hurting herself. My other horse, Term, is now at my sister's place on lease to her daughter and she hasnn't noticed him acting odd at all. Now my sister lives next door so why is he acting weird at my place and not there. Even my big huge dogs are acting off, also had there food tested. They normally would follow me outside but at a distance, now they are clued to my side and just start whimpering out of the blue. I can be sitting at my computer and my Mal will just start crying or my Shepherd. It is just starting to freak me out with how strange my critters are acting here. I called the old owner, who at one time had horses, and they hung up when I asked if their animals acted odd in any way I got hung up on. So something odd has more then likely happened here before.
So do you guys have any clue whay may be going on here?
