My 25 year old palomino laid down yesterday to roll around like he does often but this time he couldn't get back up. He could get into the sitting position, but couldn't get his hind end up. He tried to several times, but just couldn't. So we tied some ropes around him to help pull him up rest of the way when he got into the sitting position. We were SO close to having him up but he just collapsed back down when he was almost there! So I called the vet but he was eating dinner with his family and said he thought it was colic and he would come out tomorrow. So he should be here in an hour. The Horse has gotten a lot worse, he's just laying on his side now and kicking his legs. He is laying out in the heat so I don't know what to do. I've been spraying him with the hose to keep him cool and trying to give him hay and water. He's breathing heavy now. We are having the vet come out to Put him to sleep. How much do you all think it would cost for med? Or do you think he should just be put out of his misery?
