Wow. Those are quite the images! Thank you for sharing. I'm glad that Tinker is going to be okay. Talk about scary!!

We lost a horse from sand colic. He was just never quite right after the first time and eventually got a bad enough case that there was nothing to be done (couldn't afford the surgery). All my horses get their weekly doses of Fibersyll, but it's nothing but sand where I live, so you always have to keep an eye out for it to show up.

Did they say how long (over time) it would have taken for her to have ingested that much sand? Is she fed in a sandlot? I only ask because my horse has coliced off and on w/ sand over about the last 10 years and I'm curious. I feed him in a stall for the most part because he drops his grain and eats off the ground... (yucky teeth). Is she home yet?

No she's a show horse so she gets turned out early in the morning till about 11 in her own pasture( all the horses have one) and they are pretty big and its all grass. She is home and she is getting much better she has to be hand walked for 2 weeks and I have to wait a month to ride. We think she is mineral defficent becasue she is eating the sand now and we give her minerals in her food bucket and licks it dry. So we are getting blood work done to check if she is diffcent in a mineral so that we can stop her nasty habbit!
