At the first signs of colic I give mineral oil....whoo knows about the taquilla...but I think its cheaper to purchase mineral oil and more convienent....jmo. I know what taquilla does to people I wouldn't give it to my horse.
Yeah.i mean my uncle could have called the vet but it was like 11 at night AND he is like an hour away.and the whiskey was right in the house.and poor mr marky was out there colicking and being walked around.i don't think he was given that much though
The liqur is used to relax the horse (and his muscles). Hence the reason drunk drivers never get seriously hurt, they are relaxed. Beer is bubbly, and since horses cannot burb it back up, it could not help or make the situation worse. The liqur also kills bacteria, that sometimes gets going and is believed to be a cause of some colics, or a result of it, depending on who you ask. Although sometimes who really knows why they colic :roll:. I have never used liqure, but I know some people who have and swear by it.
