    Unhappy Famous COTH jingles needed (sad update)

    My heart horse, Cleo, is colicking right now. It isn't bad, not thrashing, etc. But she is definitely uncomfortable and keeps checking out her tummy. Vet is being called. In the 18 years I've owned her, I have never seen her colic, so I'm definitely worried.


    Update: I'm sorry I haven't been able to come back here until now. Sadly, she had to be euthanized this morning. She was completely obstructed, and at her age I didn't want to put her through surgery. She was in her mid-twenties and I have owned her for what would have been 18 years on the 28th of this month. Thank you for all the jingles and thoughts and prayers.

    Jingles.
    Vets around here said this year they have been swamped with colics.
    Maybe it is the wild weather swings.

    Hope all passes soon.

    I HATE colic
    Agree the weather is responsible for a lot of cases this time of year.

    Hope Cleo is feeling better by the time you read this!

    If i'm posting on Coth, it's either raining so I can't ride or it's night time and I can't sleep.

    Jingles and prayers from KY!

    A lot of colics have been happening around here, because the grass greened up so fast. Fortunately, the farm owner has been keeping our horses in the winter pastures and letting them in the summer pastures gradually.

    If you do put your horse out on spring grass, remember to leave some roughage (hay) for them to eat, too. Because spring grass is 75% water, your horse needs extra roughage to push it through the gut. If it doesn't get pushed through it sits and ferments, which can cause gas colic (as per a Progressive Nutritionist.)
    When in Doubt, let your horse do the Thinking!
