Colic, **** IT

Currently waiting for vet to turn up for my first ever case of colic, and it had to be Ace, think positive thoughts etc.

It is very mild, so hopefully all will be well, but horse people will understand why I'm so scared.

Healing thoughts, GH!

I don't care how 'mild' a colic it might be, all of them are scary!

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Sending prayers your way GH! It's been a long time since I've dealt with a colicking horse, hope it's a long time until I have to. That's never a good deal.

Ace is a trooper though, I'm sure she will be just fine!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Here's to hoping its just simple gas colic. Even that is pretty scary, though!

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your new momma!

Sending healing thoughts Ace's way! I hope all goes well.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.
