Any one?? Iv never seen colic go on for so long and in such a fluxuating way...

Colic can go on for days. Two hours is nothing, depending on the type.

Hoping it's just gas colic, and the vet can make him right again soon.

I've never heard that colic should only last for half an hour, I'm sure it happens but in all honestly 2 hours doesn't seem extremely long. When my old gelding went down with colic he had the vet working on him for about 8 hours before he started looking better.

Good luck to the horse.

As everyone else said colic can last a long time. I know a gelding that coliced for quite awhile and the owner was up all night with him. I assume you have the horse up and walking around? I sure hope you aren't letting him lay down and roll...

I had two elderly Arabians (my first and second horses) that we finally had to euthanize after a WEEK of trying to save them. (These were separate incidents years apart). So, unfortunately, they can colic until you finally have to put them down.
