    Default New Colic product; opinions, experiences?

    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.

    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!!!!!
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.

    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.
    Don't fall for a girl who fell for a horse just to be number two in her world... ~EFO
