Hi everyone, I have some bad news. This morning when I went out to feed Dakota and Scout they were dozing as usuall but then all of a sudden Scout started acting really weird. He stumbled around and ran into things and he had a funny look in his eyes. He rammed into the fence, the top wire broke but the bottom one didn't and he got tangled up in it and then fell. Somehow he got out of it and than he started staggering around the yard, tripping over everything. Then he stopped, teetered a little and collapsed. I thought he was dying right there. My sister had seen him stumbling around and came out to se what was going on. I told her to tell someone to call the vet. My dad called the vet but just got an answering machine. My brother who hates horses wanted to just shoot him but I didn't want him to die that way. I sat in the snow with him for about half an hour. Every now and then he would try to get up but didn't get very far. But eventually he struggled and got to his feet. He right away started pulling towards Dakota so I got him back in the pasture. I don't know what is going on with him and the vet still hasn't called back. Right now he is standing out by Dakota but every now and then it is almost as if he has a seizure or something, his legs get all wobbly and he starts shaking and trying to run around. I hope he is okay but if he is in pain I will have to put him down. It is such a scary feeling to see your horse acting so strange and not being able to do anything about it. I want to know whats wrong with him and wether or not he needs to be put down. Will keep you posted. Love ya, Maria
