    I totally agree. They have Oxbow down as a bay, but if you told someone from the JC that he is a bay roan, that person would shrug and say "Okay, as long as we can identify him as Oxbow, whatever."

    He's definitely a bay roan. I don't care if the JC doesn't recognize such a color or not. I was in the paddock at Saratoga last August when he was being saddled for his maiden race (which was a total...

    I also first thought of a possible eye issue when reading the OP. It's very possible for a horse to have a minor eye issue go unnoticed. In this case, it's possible he was doing well with the eye...

    I'm thinking about this too--she is irregular in early spring/late fall. I would not forgive myself if I didn't catch it and the worst happened, due to the severity of her colics.

    She may be ultrasounded tomorrow. Wouldn't annual false pregnancies be considered an ovary abnormality though? Thanks for describing the spay, it doesn't sound as bad as I had imagined.

    Thanks for the responses...is it possible that my mare's rather unusual history, hormone wise, is contributing to these drastic forms of gas colic?
