That is just redic; don't listen to her. Ah, BO's...*rolls eyes* they can be a pain sometimes.

Alot of times there will be blood, usually they will blow air into the tube, and if the mineral oil that they are pumping down comes back clear then that's a good sign. If green or nasty colored stuff comes up, that's bad.

Also, did the vet shove his arm up the rear and pull poop out? What kind of colic was it? I'm just curious because I really think the BO was trying to make you feel awful and I just don't think that's fair of her to do at all.

The barometric preasure has to do with the atmosphere. It has to do with the weight of the air pressing against the earths surface (forgive me, I'm not a science person). Anyway, it really can be a factor in colic. I really don't think you had anything to do with it and you even said she seemed fine when you checked on her. It happens and I think it's awful that the BO put that kind of pressure and blame on you...

Oh ok so now green icky stuff came out of the hose. She did put her hand up her bum but didnt find an impaction and didnt pull any thing out. Once Bunny started to fart and get better the vet then said it was a gas collic.
We do think that her intestins got twisted because she kept rolling and was getting worse. But then near the end when she was down for good we just let her roll and the vet said that it could have made every thing get untwisted again.

First off if a dirty bucket made a horse that sick there would be a lot of ranchers without horses because many are pastured and drink from ponds. Hay left over for a day isn't going to cause colic either think about it again horses out in pasture that eat off of round bales till they are gone then they are replaced. It sounds to me like your BO really needs another profession because they clearly aren't cut out for being a BO.

I went in the stall to brush Bunny's mane because she saw me near her stall and new It was her turn to come out and play. And I REALLY like this horse. She seemed in good health and in good spirit.
I'm curious as how you were so sick you had to skip cleaning her stall yet you could take the time to brush her mane?

Um well when you've just done 7 stalls (thats how many I do a day) and brushing a horses mane doesnt take as much stamina as a stall does, and since my mom works there to I always have to wait for her to get done. So its not like I could have just got done and took off for home.

Hope you are feeling better from your own illness
Don't take to heart what people say when they are under stress. As everyone has already said, the BO was just looking to blame someone.

Im so sorry! Poor horsie!!! This is not your fault...I hope you feel better
