well if she won't eat the soaked food with psyllium tomorrow i'm going to have to get a second opinion.

Its just so heartbreaking to see her that way.

Go to walmart and get metamucil and try! My horses LOVE the orange flavored. And it will push out the sand to.

No it wont. My horses wont touch sand clear, or sand blast. But give them some metamucil and they go to town. Lol. I use it everymonth for 3 days and it helps keep them clear of sand.

My horse had sand colic and they treaty her the same way that cowgirl140ty horse was treated. We caught it earlier and she was better my the next day. I had to soak her hay after that. We were blessed because she did not have a whole lot of sand in her poop. Be praying for you and her.

I'm going to give the Metamucil a try and see of she's willing to eat that. How much do you give them?

I give a capful, like the big cap it comes with once a day for a week one week of every month. I'd also be making that horse a soaked bucket of alfalfa and a bit of corn oil.

Well, I just tried soaked alfalfa pellets with Metamucil. She showed no interest in eating it. She smelled it then turned away. I left it with her to see if she will be hungry enough to eat it later.

I even tried giving her a baby carrot to see of she wasn't interested in that (her favorite snack) and she didn't want that either...

Will she eat soaked beet pulp??it is great to mix stuff in like your metamucil My horses all love beet pulp but several of them aren't fussy about alfalfa pellets. The ones that do eat them have to be pretty hungry too,so if they were sick feeling like your mare,don't think they would eat them either

I am following your thread and just wanted you to know how much I am praying for her to begin eating any of the possible regiments, either vet prescribed or forum-member suggested. Just to get things moving through...I don't know much about sand colic; but after reading this, I fully intend to do my research!

If I should come across anything not already mentioned here in my reading tonight, I will most certainly pass it on, fwiw.

Again, prayers for you and your sweet horse...
