Well, he decided not to eat his breakfast this morning! The Barn Manager called me at 6:15 am to say that he was acting totally normal, but wasn't interested in his grain. She tried giving it to him dry, and with the oil, no interest. By the time I got there, the BO was out too, and he was still acting completely fine, but didn't want his grain. He had drank about half of each of his two buckets the night before, and finished all his hay. We tried giving him half a scoop of sr feed that we had in the barn, and he gobbled it right up. Walked around for a while, still no change. Is it possible that he just lost interest in strategy (he's been on it for two years). His owner told me that he is a complete drama queen if he is slightly uncomfortable and there is NO WAY we'd not know if he was starting to colic. Not so fun morning, but he seems to be ok! The BO is keeping an eye on him today while I'm at work and will call if anything changes...
Smart people listen. Not so smart people think they do not need to hear what others have to say.
