Because of the toxins and the worms you're trying to make them pass. I had a trainer explain that it was just that much more stress on their system, you've given them poison to kill the worms and now you're asking them to perform as an athlete after litterally poisoning them. She told me to think about how I thought I would perform after eating a small amount of strychnine or something? Ok, I got her point! So now I just give them time off. 10 hrs is probably enough, I usually do mine at evening feeding around 5 pm and then next day I don't worry about it, regardless of time and I've not had any colic or other problems.
