The other photos you posted in your album yesterday when you uploaded the laying reclined photo do not show a horse in distress at all. And certainly none of the discharge associated with choke.


Also, while you were so very upset about your horse you posted in several threads totally unrelated to this.

I guess I am weird but if I was totally freaking out about my horse possibly being very ill I would not be able to respond to a question about kissing spine or if a horse would make a good hunter/jumper or not.



I have to second everything that always behind has stated.

If my horse was in trouble like the OP's horse was I would not have even thought to go on the computer, I would have called the vet IMMEDIATELY.

And the fact that you don't know what Banamine is, scares that crap out of me!

Not defending the OP but banamine is a company name. Just like Q-tips - really cotton swabs, Kleenex - facial tissue. Banamine is the name that Schering Plough gave the product flunixin meglumine.

I also know that colic and choke don't present the same way, and one in no way, shape, or form, can be misconstrued as the other. The signs are not the same.

A horse who is having a choke episode will stretch its neck out, and try to cough up the obstruction. Any food or water in their throats ahead of the obstruction will spill out their nostrils and mouths.

Choke will not involve the horse kicking or biting at its stomach, nor thrashing about on the ground. They also won't voluntarily lie down during a choke episode.

If the horse was having a choke episode versus a colic, even a noob horse owner would be able to tell the difference. The description the OP gave was of colic, not choke.

You can choose to believe her if you wish. I for one am feeling rather suspicious at the moment.
it was more for clarity for other readers and the OP, I'm sure you know what you are talking about but there are several others on here who are new to horses and seeking information. I am not about to pass judgement on someone based off a few posts from the internet as to whether or not they are an honest person. I do, however still have serious reservations about this person owning two foals with their level of experience and knowledge.

Just want to confirm things for people, I only posted twice while I was trying to find vets names, don't have a book full of numbers just googled names through the yellow pages, and horse forum was already open. I can't call directory enquiries from my mobile as I blocked it as it costs too much money.i did not upload pictures, my sister did and she must have responded to some threads, she knows a bit about horses and knows a lot about my last loan horse.

The only pain killer or medication that I know about for horses is bute. I have not been around many sick horses and have no knowledge of medicines for horses. This does not make me a bad owner as I would consider myself a novice owner and unable to diagnose anything correctly. Hence me spending over 50 euro trying to get in touch with vets.

I want to thank those of you who left reassuring comments and advice on what to do and what not to do. I am happy that bailey is now doing well and I have learnt a lot in the experience.

For those of you who don't believe me----fine, what ever, im just happy my foal is ok and doing well again

I really disagree there.
