Interesting. How many field necropsies have you done?
Unless the horse has a ruptured stomach, which in itself takes hours to kill them, I can't see an animal dropping dead within an hour of presenting colic symptoms.
A brain hemorrhage will take them off quickly, but it won't present as colic. In fact, I can't think of anything
that will present as colic that will kill them within an hour. Please enlighten me if I'm incorrect.
