    Right, from what I understand not all colic is acute. He could just have a mild tummy ache and maybe some gas issues. Is he pooping and does it look normal?

    But he's probably just being fussy. I have one of those too. I feed our horses a mixed feed with mineral pellets and he can eat everything and leave those little pellets at the botton of his feed bin. If I try to slip in anything, like vitamins or a supplement that has a taste he turns away and puts his head in the corner of his stall and pouts. He's so spoiled. I love him to pieces though. Lol

    Good luck Brit.

    Just giv him teh alfalfa why risk the dangers of feeding Corn with it's KNOWN issues and the studies showing how BAD it is??

    Corn is 70% or more sugars and starches ... he very well could have a mild colic going on that will only get worse

    I say you ahve one smart little horse that doesn't like the cany you are giving him
