Next time I got to him he was down again and didn't want to eat so I gave her a call and she said to give banamine again later at night, I asked about moving him to the new place as he would be able to be watched by a horse person there and she said the trailer ride was likely to do him some good. So we loaded him and his pal up and brought them to
The new barn (muuuch better conditions) and he was given bute (powder) and put in a stall for easy observation. He has been looking much better since being moved but we do live in a bit of a sandy area that he is not used to, and the moral of my novel is that I'd like some tips for prevention as I believe this is the main cause of the colic.
I have been recommended bran, adding it to his feed - feedback on this? I don't know as much about horse nutrition as I'd like.
The other thing that has been recommended is a supplement.. It started with a 'p' but I can't remember now. I'll try to find it and post here..
Anyway, tips/feedback anyone?
