They said that the walking could be helpful in certain colic instances, but harmful in others.
Opinions on this? I'm curious to hear others' stance.
I was curious about this too. My friends horse had colic a number of times and the BO said walk it out & he'd be fine. It kind of puzzled me they weren't more concerned especially since he had coliced 3 times in the span of just two months....
My friend was only leasing him and started a lease on another horse so I'm not sure if he's still experiencing the same issues, rumor is he's doing fine though.
My brothers horse had passed from colic but I wasn't there so I didn't see what it looked like. She was older, so the BO had told us to expect it sooner than later.
Anyway, this thread is greatly appreciated! I read a lot of valuable info, thank you everyone & the OP.
