Ugh, colic is my worst fear! My gelding was coughing really bad today and it made me worried sick. The BO is certain it was just the last bale of hay being dusty (truck comes tomorrow with fresh hay) and is nothing to be concerned about.
I always keep a bottle of pure peppermint oil, so I'm going to dose him tomorrow, just in case. He loves peppermint, so it's like a treat to him. And for reference peppermint oil is good as a colic prevention, colic treatment and for colds/coughs. It also has several other uses. I love this stuff!
Oh, and loud jingles for your sweet boy.
