    Default May I request jingles, please?

    My daughter's TB mare, Impulsive, coliced today.
    As of now, after a $500 vet bill (my regular vet was rounding up cows), she is resting and is quiet.
    She has only coliced twice in the past 8 years, both times due to big weather changes, which I learned how to manage.
    Not sure why she coliced today.
    She didn't eat breakfast (not unusual), but also ignored her hay (unusual). We are moving to a new barn tomorrow...my friend who has kept her horse with me for 6 years bought a farm and so we spent the day getting the barn ready for the move tomorrow. When I returned later in the day, there were only 2 piles of poop and they were dry.
    The vet tried to tube her, but the tube kept getting stuck and she thought she has an epilottis entrapment. As a result, she had a horrible nose bleed, which really upset Jen, my daughter, who happened to be home today from college.
    So we managed to IV fluids into her and she seemed a bit perkier by 9:00. I am heading out to check on he again at midnight and the barn owner will check on her as well.
    Imp is 21, and retired. She means the world to our family. A former advanced mare, she was given to my daughter after her pony died, and Imp taught Jen how to event, and kept her safe.

    Jingles for your family and Imp
    I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.

    I read about her on your blog, and was quite touched by her.
    Super jingles from MA.

    I know Imp from her previous life as an eventer. She's lovely and I've always been thrilled for you that you have her.

    Many jingles for Imp. Please keep us posted and here's hoping your regular vet returns soon.

    Oh, well, clearly you're not thoroughly indoctrinated to COTH yet, because finger pointing and drawing conclusions are the cornerstones of this great online community. (Tidy Rabbit)

    Jingling from KY. Thank you for reminding me to add some extra mineral oil in Tessie's feed tonight. We are going from 100's to a low of 52 tonight. I am saying some prayers for Imp, too.
    When in Doubt, let your horse do the Thinking!
