So glad she is on the mend. I've never had a horse colic *knocking on wood* so can't imagine what it is like. Now you can have something else to be thankful for this Thanksgiving
Thanks for your concern Maureen.
The swollen legs actually could have something to do with it. I think she was getting fed too much grain and then from standing still and maybe not getting the water caused a blockage. But I don't think she was dehydrated. Her gums looked normal. Does dehydration have anything to do with stocked up legs, do you know?
And thanks Brittany!
I just don't want the grain to go moldy.
