I don't remember exactly, but after Gem was recovering from colic, I believe all the grain he was getting was just a handful of grain with his supplements mixed in. And I believe a flake or 2 of hay.

We slowly worked him back up to his regular amount, and slowly took him off the hay (it was summer and we were putting him out on grass)
We also got a grazing muzzle for him and we started him out on the grass for 20 min or so and then gradually worked it up until he was on the grass for 24 hours.

after care depends some on what caused the colic - was it gassy colic or an impaction?

Start grain slowly...and it helps if it is soaked.
Lots and lots of fluids!

...and monitor poop!

Glad she is feeling better

That's go great, I'm glad to hear that Jub is going to be okay. I don't know but that sounds like an awful lot of grain every day for a horse that is not really being used hard. Do you give her hay as well? One thing you might consider is that if you are giving her hay as well, you might cut back on the grain a little and only feed her one can in the morning on the days that you ride. It is possible that this could act at a preventative measure because she will be more likely to colic in the future. Anyway, here I go always giving advice. I'm so happy to hear she is going to be okay. :)

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

You should always start back on both hay and grain slowly after a colic. Generally start with 1/2 a hay meal after your horse has showed no signs of pain and is deficating for 12 hours, then go to a full hay meal, then add about 1/2 of a grain meal and then at the next meal a full grain meal. This is all assuming that there is no recurrence of loss of appetite or symptoms of discomfort after any meal and you should always check with the vet who is actually treating the horse before feeding ANYTHING to a horse being treated for colic.

Thank you EVERYONE for you very kind replies.
I was just at the barn and JUBILEE IS BACK TO NORMAL. She's pooping (A LOT), eating hay and just being her usual normal self. What a difference from yesterday, I guess something just clicked.

And Brittany, it was impaction colic.

As for the grain, she seemed very very upset not to get fed any today. Lol. I brought her in the barn with the other horses but just gave her hay. Whenever I'd come near her she'd be nosing me for food. I felt so mean, but I didn't feed her any. I did give her a little handful and a carrot later on though.

Anyway, so today's Tuesday, so I made a little schedule for her grain rationing:

Wednesday AM/PM: quarter can
Thursday AM/PM: half can
Friday AM/PM: three-quarter can
Saturday AM/PM: full can

I am considering lowering her grain to three-quarters or even half. I do agree, she isn't getting worked enough for all that grain and perhaps that could have caused the colic since it was just sitting in her gut she wasn't moving much. She was stocked up as well.

I am just soooooo glad she's okay!!
Yay..... chips & salsa for the humans and treats for the horsies!!
