help me. new horse. bad tummy.
Hi. I just got a new horse on loan four days ago. first day she went great and settled in just nicely, shes gone from living with two other horses to by herself.
She has gone onto richer grass than she has had in the past, but shes only on it three hours a day, and stabled the rest of the time.
Her tummy is making really loud gargling noises, and her poo is really smelly, and pretty loose.
Im not sure is shes just stressed out about the new move, as before this she wasnt in any work. Or the change in diet and excercise has affected her. she looks great and doesnt seem ill, apart from lying down more than expected.
Has she got colic? or do you think its nothing to worry about....
let me know asap, im very worried about her, and it doesnt help that its not my horse.
