What are some surefire ways to prevent colic from happning? Basically all I know is not riding after meals, or right before meals and keeping an eye on the horse's diet. What else can you do?
Btw, my mare has never colicked as far as I know, and I want it to stay that way. At my old barn a lot of horses died from colic and it really freaks me out.
Right now Jubilee is on 24/hr turnout. There are hay bales out in the field, and a bit of grass. She also gets one am feeding of sweet feed and one pm feeding of sweet feed. (One feeding = folger's coffee can size). She also gets a scoop of powdered flax in the morning. Does this sound ok? This is what her previous owner gave her (minus the flax) and she's been perfectly fine so far.
