Hi all I am well aware of the risk of not seeing a vet right away we are in close communication and we are monitoring the situation and my horses well being closely, that being said I appreciate your concerns and if he seems like he is getting worse we will take more drastic action.
The vet, my sister and I have been discussing both the possibility of Hind gut ulcers and or Penduculated lipomas and he is looking into some treatments for both of those things.
Walkingthwalk, I agree with you on the diet he is on no grain and we offer him some bran mash but other then that he is just on pasture thanks for your suggestions
We will look into succeed as well
Thanks very much all for the information

Last year I had a pony die from a lipoma. Though this is rare, it did happen.

Are you monitoring more than gut sounds and heart rate?

Will you keep me updated, please?

That would mean sending me a PM since I have a tendency to lose track of threads after a time --- even if I subscribe to them - lol lol

I am interested in any ideas for treatments on these issues. I feel like they are a large part of the underlying reason my horse has had three mild colics in July due to the heat/humidity. I've gone thru more Banamine since the heat came to town than I have most of my lifetime of horse ownership

Thanks
