We don't charge. In 3 years, we have had one colick that resulted in being in the barn until 4am, delirious from exhaustion doing whatever needed to be done to help. We were only going to charge for the cost of banamine and syringes, (not our time), but the horse's owners replaced it without us even asking.

I spent the better part of an afternoon with a colicky horse two days ago.I guess I was just happy knowing he was gonna live.Didn't own him...didn't matter.Had people do the same for me.Only money that ever changed hands was to a vet here and there.don't expect pay,because some day or night when you're not around,your horse may go down,or need patched up and some one might be able to save em...and I'll bet they do it for nothing.principle really.

I've walked a colicking horse for an hour before, called the vet (after asking his owner), stayed while the vet was with him then stayed the night in my car on the yard to keep an eye on him. His owner was there before the vet, she stayed the night, but I never even got a thank you, never mind payment. Infact what I did get was moans about the fact that she now had a vet bill.
