**happily munching on the free food**

glad to hear she is feeling better! Justin's last (and worst) colic was an impaction...he gets everything with water now... you might not have to go to that extreme, but it probably wouldn't hurt her to have her grain soaked for the next few weeks anyway.

Was she dehydrated also? (another reason why justin's grain and hay are soaked)

give her a hug from me next time you go out to visit!

Pheew what a relief. You and Jubilee were a topic of conversation on our trail ride yesterday (Barbarosa and I). He had read about her colic and told me about it. I wondered if the swelling was part of the colic due to dehydration or just stocking up.
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.
