In this thread, it had to be said that the OP was wrong about that. Assuming that colic is only a disease of the stabled horse is not just wrong, it's dangerous. It means that some kid who reads this, believes it, and then when their grass kept horse does colic, they won't believe that is what is happening. And I think we all know what happens when a severe colic case is not treated as soon as possible.
No I'm not trying to drag you through the mud, nor am I stating that you're trying to cause arguments. No I see your intentions, and I do like your opinions, it just seems you disagree kinda a lot...

I agree. I did post this as I read it in one of the sources from the 4-H horse Bowl. It could be because they are outdated. I will try to find that question in my list to figure out where the source came from and get back with you as soon as I can. Thank you for addressing your concern for the question's accuracy.

Where did you pull this from, and on what evidence do you base it?
It is from feeding and care of the horse page 151. It says it is frequent among stabled or paddocked horses but is uncommon in pastured horses.

In Australia, it is really not common to keep horses stabled - only show horses are, and even then it is not common for even show horses to be stabled. Most horses are kept out in large pastures 24/7. We have no smaller incidence of colic despite this.

Check out this website. It is quite wordy, and goes into a lot of detail, but it lists pretty much every single possible cause of colic and why it causes it. Worth a read:

Veterinary Articles - Colic

It is important to remember that books can be outdated very quickly. Check the date published - if it is any more than about a year ago, then it has probably been superseded by science already.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
