It depends on the area and the amount of minerals etc in teh hay. Some areas are more prone than others. I have one old horse that has passed some small stones, but they are flatter and have a star shape design in the middle. When I see one, I start him on a psyllium program .

I know what enteroliths are, but I've never seen one that large before.

I have my horses on a weely dose of psyllium not just for enteroliths, but also to keep sand from accumulating in their hind gut.

I've never seen one of those, but I've seen white stones from sand taken out of a horse the size of a baseball. Can you imagine how uncomfortable it must be walking around with rocks in your gut -ouch.

Yeah, equine colon mineral stones are 'magickal' all right. Especially if they make someone stupid enough to buy them!

I knew a mare years ago who coliced and they pulled one of those slightly larger than a cantaloupe from her. The barn owners kept that thing for years and wrote her name on it. It may still be sitting around somewhere for all I know. The mare lived and was no worse for the wear after that surgery. It was bizarre to say the very least.

Interesting! I have never seen or even heard of these! The fabulous life of a horse owner, even after my whole life time... learning something new every day

Not at all.... but if you're selling freeze dried slices of hoof as beer coasters, I'll be in it!
