Customer Question

My horse - a 13-y-o gelding - is typically a piggy when it comes to all types of food, but today is not interested in hay, dry food or hand fed apple; he's acting listless and has been lying down a few times through the day. He doesn't look like he's in pain, his eyes are clear and he doesn't look bloated or have any discharge from eyes or nose; no sign of diarrhoea. I'm not sure if this could be colic or is there something else we should be looking for. Can you please advise?
