For future reference. If you think your horse is sick with something that intake and output matter, then confine them some where that you can monitor their output and intake.

I do not think not urinating around people is a universal thing.

Yeah...horses urinate around me all the time. Not sure what you're meaning by they don't urinate around people. I've read before they prefer urinating on softer surfaces so it doesn't splash up as much. I'm not sure how true that is though. But they still do it whenever and wherever the urge comes about generally.

I'd definitely isolate her to monitor her.

Where the heck did you get this idea? I've had horses over 3 decades and ALL of them have urinated whenever they take the urge, sometimes even while I'm in the middle of a ride.

I didn't mention anything in your other thread, but I have to say it sounds as if your mare is impaction coliced, which is a LOT more scary than gas colic.

Because you've waited so long to have the vet out, she may not be able to pass the blockage. Which means either surgery or euthanasia.

Since your parents seem to have trouble with wanting to foot the bills, I'm going to presume they sure as heck aren't going to want to opt for colic surgery if it comes down to that.

I guess 'never' was a bad word. My horses in generally, do not pee around me mostly. I can be out there for hours and I'll not see them urinate. She is in a small paddock so I can see her intake and output. Vet came out, did a few things and we have to do blood work. She is thinking there may be something wrong with her liver.

So you have moved her, because before you said that you had no way of knowing.

During the day, no. I keep her in a large pasture with my other mare during the day. At night, she goes in the small paddock with a lean-to, and the pregnant one goes into the stall. With her the way she is, I am keeping her in the small pasture so I can watch what she passes and such.

Sounds like a perfect set up!

Lena got kicked last night by a very ticked off horse. She also got bit in the hip. Don't know what compelled Ladybug to take her anger out on her, but she did. Also, she hasn't been eating as much as she use to. Not sure if its cause I am trying to swich over to mare and foal.

Interesting.. Lena was off her feed here and there the last few days. Eating it when ever she wanted, mostly interested in hay. She has the schedual all screwed up. Just turned on the tv for the camra and she is laying down. Must be getting to heavy told hold all the time. I know she's been laying down a lot lately. Think I'm going to watch till she gets up or does anything else. Anyone else think she might go before March?
