    Always looking for another arrow in my quiver, especially for something like colic.

    Has anyone tried this product?

    They are discussing this product over at the Muck Bucket too. http://www.themuckbucket.com/showthr...e-this-allowed

    Personally? I wouldn't waste my money.

    Sounds like some expensive snake oil to me.

    Seriously, you can't be serious.

    Now come out from under that bridge!!!!!

    I boarded at this terrible hunter/jumper facility north of Nashville for about 11 months last year when I relocated to an area with a decided lack of boarding barns. The barn owner was completely incompetent and horse-ignorant, but good at getting non-horsey parents to fork out lots of money for lessons and shows with her trainer of the week.

    But I digress...

    Anyway, she would use that seaweed crap for colics instead of "traditional" methods: you know, banamine, hand-walking, calling the vet...

    Luckily, most of her colics were impactions and it did seem to help a little-- mainly because I think after getting dosed with the nasty seaweed solution, the colicky horses broke down and drank out of their disgusting, never-dumped water buckets to get the taste out of their mouths.

    The stuff is basically just electrolytes and a mild laxative, which can be purchased and administered MUCH more cheaply. Sure, it will help a little in a mild impaction or mild gas colic... but it's not going to do squat in a more serious situation.
