    Default Need JINGLES for colicking Kid's Pony

    One of my boarder's, her young mare is with me, just emailed me to tell me that their granddaughter's pony has colicked. He was on our farm until August when they moved him closer to them to she could ride him more and they other facility has an indoor.

    Said Pony is just the perfect match for this child, she is 10 he's in his late teens. The granddaughter had an accident a few years ago on her old pony and has had MAJOR riding issues with any other horse until we found her this pony. He's simply a large pony, nothing fancy schmancy, big old scar on his back leg (from where a previous owner did not take care of a wire cut), was on a public trail riding program, has an attitude at times, you know the drill.

    Through this relationship with this pony and this little girl she has overcome all of her fears about riding! It's been amazing to watch her transformation and I am scared to death that something will happen to him.

    Please send jingles that he makes it!

    Oh no, jingling hard for the pony.

    They just get better as they get into their teens. You have lots of years of being good to kids ahead of you!

    Thanks everyone. I heard from his owner, our boarder, late last night. It seems that he's been running a rather high temp, which may have been the main issue (virus) and had stopped consuming fluids and set himself up for the colic. He was at a big horse show this past weekend.

    Vet came out and drew blood, results will be back today. They tubed/lubed him and gave him meds. Temps came down some and he's a bit more perky last night.

    I am waiting to hear more today.

    I think the jingles are working. THANK YOU
