    Any chance that she could be pregnant?

    If I had a horse acting like that he/she'd be at a large equine hospital getting attention since things can go south so quickly even with the older ones.

    I'd at least get the vet out for a check up. A horse off its feed is a big, fat warning sign to me.

    tlak to the barn owner as they are in control of the yard and horses welfare
    if the owner is away and shes still ill then the barn owner has a duty to call the vet out
    as it could be anything and if colic for exsample then you dont muck about with it you call a vet as in asap

    Has a vet been involved? If not, who gave the mineral oil and how?

    It's risky allowing food to a horse who may be in the midst of a serious colic issue, such as an impaction.

    Is she still the same now, 12 hours after the OP?

    Does the BO require owners to leave notification of how to deal with a sick/injured horse when the owner is gone? Does the vet require any notification on who is allowed to call for help for an absentee-owner horse? Things to think about for both parties.

    Colic can absolutely present as a very quiet horse.

    Got ahold of owner finally and got permission to take horse to the vet. She was lubed and given banamine and will be watched closely.
