Dumas Colic-ed !!!!

I'm still a bit freaked out it happened so FAST! I fed them this morning (hay) he was fine. Was out there at noon, fine. Hubby let them out to graze at 3, nothing seemed off. At 4:30 he was down and sweaty!!! We called the vet and he got here about 6pm it is 8 our time now and he seems to be getting better tho he is still doped up a bit. I'll let you know more after a while as I am going back out there now that we ate a bite of dinner (not that we were hungry). Say a prayer for us that the treatment worked! We cannot afford the surgery and will have to put him down if this doesn't work. Thanks everyone! ~ Amy

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Thanks guys! I really appreciate it. Dumas is looking pretty good. At least he is walking around and being his old self! I'll let you know more in the morning. Thanks again!

You and your family (horses included) are in my prayers! I know how terrifying a bout with colic can be. Glad to hear he's improving.

Will pray he will be up and back to his old self in the morning. I've never had a horse colic and it scares the bejeebers out of me. You must have been frantic. Glad the vet got out quick.
