    Glad that I am forgiven Mango. I used to be a stickler for proper English and spelling. After 3 rounds of Cancer treatment and other medical issues I have realized that other things are more important. Plus with this brace on my arm my typing looks like a 5th Grader.
    Allow me to state I will be utilizing all the advice I have been given. This mare especially is important to my breeding program a double bred grandaughter of Galero and a grand daughter of Thee Desparado. Well built solid body and a really refined head. Athletic and pretty at the same time how rare is that?
    Anyone else have any advice I will promise to read it and apply it.
    I have never had a case of colic and this is the most serious issue besides a riding accident I have encountered in 46 years of horse ownership.
    One heck of a wakeup call. Shalom

    She is still refusing to eat just a little hay. She is drinking though. The vet said to give her time. I think he is going to get tired of me calling him.
    Should I demand he come out again? If she has not eaten or improved by this afternoon I will call again. Shalom

    I would not be feeding her hay at all. Only wet stuff like beet pulp, soaked pellets, bran mash etc, etc. OSU had me withhold all food for minimum 12 hrs and then just give soft feeds for 4 or 5 days afterwards. Her throat is probably sore from the obstruction. If she isn't eating the soft stuff, then I'd call the vet and see about a scope, she might have a tear if it's that serious.

    LOL, I had the same problem when I was training in the Dallas/Ft Worth area. I drive an OSU orange Dodge Ram PU, and I have an OSU holo plate on the front and a regular OSU lic plate on the back. If I went down on a Friday, I always wore my favorite OSU Orange T-shirt that says, "The Good - OSU logo, The BAD- OU Logo and the UGLY - Longhorns logo" on it. Good thing I'm an older lady, I probably would have had to fight my way back over 'the border' a couple of times.

    My dream is to some day have Pistol Pete painted on my tailgate but I keep having vet bills instead......GRRRR!

    The vet said a little hay is OK and that she is probably sore He just came back out and gave me some Bute and a couple of syringes for to make a paste with and get the antibiotic into her. He did say she would be sore for a few days. After calling him and letting him know how hmuch I paid for her several times during the conversation he just appeared. Funny I live 22 miles from his office. Wonder how much this 'visit" will cost?
    She is now eating some softened Omolene.
    The other horses I gave soaked alfalfa pellets are split 50/50 if they like it. This might take them some getting used to. Might just forego the alfalfa pellets and use it as a treat only. I only just bought 10 bags of it. At 12'95 a bag. Anyone close to me feed them? Shalom

    I think you scared the vet, DB
    It helps to put a little if the omolene together with the soaked alfalfa. They will get used to it, don't worry. And lucky You, I pay 15 for alfalfa pellets...grrrrr
