    Did the vet specify what kind of colic it was? (gassy, impaction...etc. etc.?)

    I never let mine have grain while they are colicing...only grass (no hay, either)

    Have they hooked her up to an IV yet? That is one surefire way to get fluids into her - it is not that expensive, either (maybe $100??)

    Don't give her any electrolytes either (just a fyi! )

    How's her poop? Has she passed the mineral oil?

    I have to agree with kick and sue, never feed grain in a time like this, we had a horse at our barn that colic really bad, sitting rolling, threashing...it was bad, we tried every thing...walking for hours, vet came to try to help...just getting worst my the hour untill they loaded him up on a trailer to go to a vet hospital , some one was in the trailer with him keeping a eye on him when it happend........YES IT HAPPEND.....poop-o-matic!!!!(felt sorry for the stable help who had to clean the trailer out), I had a border who horse would colic ever so often and when it happend I would not grain for at least 48 hours after he coliced and was ok

    Oh, I'm so sorry JR. My thoughts are with you and yours. Here are some homemade cookies to go with the sandwich and caffeine. Just keep working with her and don't give up.

    I know how you're feeling, my mare colicked a few weeks back and its so terrifying. Just stay strong, because if the vet said nothing's twisted then chances are she'll be better soon. Xx

    Sorry to read of Jubs colic. Sassafras and I will keep fingers and hooves crossed, we'll say our prayers for Jubals return to health. Give her a scratch on the chin for all of us. Update when you can.

    Oh, goodness,I know this is a stressful time for the both of you! Hugs and prayers coming your way! I have a horse prone to colic and it;s so stressful. You are also very sleep deprived as well! Keep your head up!

    UPDATE:

    Hi everyone, just wanted to let you all know, I think Jubilee is going to pull through. Yesterday, after the vet gave her painkillers, she seemed back to normal because it kind of masked her pain and gave us a false positive, but this morning, her meds have worn off by now, and she's doing a lot better. I called the lady who did chores at the barn this morning (since I had to go to school) to see how she was and she said Jubilee looked so much better. She was walking around, happy, eating hay ... This lady's dealt with colic with her horse before and knows what to look for, so I trust her judgement. I am going to get out to the barn after school today though, to keep an eye on her and make sure she's okay. Thanks so much for all your thoughts and prayers, I appreciate it.

    I do have a couple questions though, now that she's recovering. What should I expect from her? Will it take a little while for her to get back to normal and if so, how long? Should I start her slowly back on grain? She usually gets a full can twice a day, but maybe I could try doing a quarter, then half, than 3-quarters than full per day? What do you guys think?

    Thanks again!!
