What do they mean when a horse is cast?

Cast (Veterinary/In Stall or Paddock)

A horse is said to be cast when he is in either his stall or a paddock and he is lying down, and is unable by himself to get back up again. Usually this is due to the fact that the horse has lain too close to the wall or fence or from a hoof or leg being caught up in something.
