    Corn oil seemed to be what made Blu colic last summer. Strange... and I believe it was the feed. He was penned with my friend's gelding and he at all the food leaving Blu with pretty much any. So I separated them. Blu just got htat extra food in there to fast, I think. Lol.

    Hmm, does your horse have a dull coat? Maybe you should get him/her a bood test, if so.
    Anyway, yes, give him/her some corn oil, or special shiny-coat supplements.

    I really really reccommend checking for worms. Especially if your horse is at a large stable with many horses, worms will spread quickly and often. They will eat up the nutrients your horse needs for maintaining a healthy coat.

    If it does, a Panacure Powerpack will kill them in no time.

    Blu, I doubt that it was the corn oil that made your horse colic. I would tend to think it was more of the feed or inhaling it too quickly. I've never heard of corn oil causing colic.[/quote]
