    Sending more thoughts and blessings to you and your girl. See if she will drink, maybe gatorade, or electrolites added in water. I keep the apple flavoered around cause Rascal will drink that when he won't touch anything else.

    I've been through this with Rascal 4 times now, I so feel for you both!! There is hope even if it might not seem so now. Rascal hasn't coliced in almost A YEAR.

    I hoep you do know we are all pulling for you both!!

    It sounds like impaction colic to me, has she been able to eat or drink or pass any feces successfully in the last 24 hours? If not, you want may consider asking the vet to come back out and tube her just with water to see if it comes back out through her nose. If it does, it's possible the only other options would be emergency surgery or to put her to sleep. How is she?

    New, very sorry to hear about your old girl.

    I do hope the issue will resolve itself, but with the hard mass in her stomach and one in her gut, there may not be much you can do except give her a peaceful end.

    It stinks and is one of the pitfalls of owning animals, but I know you'll do what's right for your mare. Every true horse person always puts the animal's needs before their own wants.
