Hey all! Yes it is over and he passed through it! The barn workers who I both respect and love called me early this am around 6. I panicked thinking there was a problem but they said drifter was drinking, looking for hay (no food was around though) and playing with his jolly ball. There was also 3 more piles in with him this morning!
I cannot guess what happened to cause it. Nothing food wise had changed. The only big difference is he was in a private pasture rather than a stall, but he had been on at least 4-6 hours of grass even while stalled and had been on 24/7 grass before his stall. We added a small amount of ultium to his strategy yesterday because I am trying to wean him onto that, but it wasn't a huge amount and he usually does great with that kind of stuff. We had a little bit of a weather change so maybe that was it as well. Just wish I could know the cause for certain so that I can be sure to avoid it! Ha
Thank you all again HF family! You were wonderful. It was my first episode of colic with drift in the year and a half that I've owned him. It was scary
