    Its one of thoughs "that would never happen to my horse" moments.

    Well Moved sona to her new place yesturday (sorry no pic yet.) WEll I go to ride today and the BO had sona out. I went up to her and she said sona was acting kinda wierd so she hosed her off then was going to keep an eye on her to see what happend. Well I know my horse very well and I noticed some thing was off. She had sand collic. So I was there with her all day. After about 3 hours she pooped, an hour later she started to look brighter and nibbled at some grass. 30 minuted later she drank water. By that point the vet FINALY got there. (called him at the start of all this but he took forever to get there. ITS ONLY A 15 MINUTE DRIVE!) it was a sand collic. She is now in her stall a totaly diffrent horse than she was this morning. She is alowed to have 1 flake a hay every hour and half, and the BO will be out to check on her through the night.

    Yucky. You'll want to add something like sandclear to her diet now that she's had this.... It can turn into a reocurring thing... :(

    I hope she feels better. Good luck.

    I am glad to hear that your baby is doing great! Colic is very scary to deal with, and I totally understand the emotions involved with the situation.

    It is great that all is well :)

    That's always a scary thing. From what I understand, a horse will usually ingest sand trying to get nutrients that they are missing. Do you have a salt block or trace mineral block available to her? If not, you might want to get one.

    She gets minerals that I feed her once a day. I know what happend though. She's a feed dumper. She puts her foot in the bucket and dumps it out on the ground and eats it. We are buying her a mat tomorrow.

    Update: I went out this morning. She was muching on the flake of hay and was drinking her water good. About an hour after I got there she pooped a really good pile (I'm excited about poop. Lol how silly) Her coat is all shiny and she's not cramping. So YAY
