    Default Jingles please. Mild Colic

    Pretty sure we are out of the woods. Vet came & went. Horse is now up, & picking at hay. My nerves prob need jingles more than aged gelding does.

    TIA
    Closest thing to a sauna around here would be tarping over a few cows, hold a bucket of water & light a match.

    Jingles for both you and your boy. Glad he seems to be rebounding.

    My vet always brings me a bottle of red wine for my nerves when he comes. Honestly, I think it is harder on the human counterpart than the horse sometimes.

    Around here, there seem to have been more than it's share of colics this winter.

    Jingles for you and your horse.

    Hoping he will keep improving.

    Jingles for the horse and (((((HUGS))))) for you.

    I've dealt with a horse for years with usually mild but chronic gas colic. Usually about 5-7 cc of Banamine orally and about 20-40 minutes on the lunge line at a walk and trot and he was fine. I used to joke that the horse was really a drug addict and wanted his Banamne fix.

    Finally one of the vets recommended using Gastro-gard. While it was expensive, the horse went from maybe 7+ colics/yr to one and 2013 was the first year with none.

    Back in my day, we didn't have as many warning labels because people weren't so dang stupid!

    Thank you everyone. Gelding seems fine today. Perhaps a little quiet. But fine. No clue what brought it on.

    Local vet is not known for beside manners. (When he arrived everyone else suddenly disappeared.)

    Emotionally, I am ok today. Four hours waiting took a toll on me w/ worry last night.

    My endless thanks to neighbors, giving up their evening, helping me hand walk for 4 hours awaiting vet..
