I tubed mineral oil, gave him banamine, called like 6 different vets out, and by the time a vet came out, he unfortunately already passed away... Thanks for all of your help... I have never used this site before, but so far I have lost 3 foals, one broodmare, and a saddle horse due to disease, prolapsing or colic, and I didn't want this horse to pass on too, but I guess he wasn't meant to be on this earth.... Thanks for your help again...

I'd also be looking into my own feeding and care regimen if I'd lost that many horses. Something obviously isn't working if you constantly have horses dropping dead.

I've owned 6 personal horses over the years and helped care for many others. Of all those horses, one died of old age, one ruptured something and couldn't be saved, and my personal heart horse had to be put down due to neurological seizures. That is 3 horses out of 55-60 animals, over the course of 3 decades.

I'd start completely revamping my feeding and care regimen, with my vet's input.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Sounds like another made-up story to me. Rmember the one that had the sick horses but could not afford gas to go see the horse? She's lost 6 horses????? We run 30 odd head and havn't lost 6 in the past 25 years.

My guess is that the horse had abcesses in the gut from the strangles and the ruptured.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
