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.
