Colicky Colt Foal.

Woke this morning to one of our young colts with a pain in the Tum totally not into feeding at all - not good! So after observing him for a bit we decided to play safe & call the Vet on a Sunday !!! Luckily the Vet is also a fantastic friend of ours... We all spent the morning with him medicating & treating him until all was back to normal & we were able to tip him back out into the paddock where he was able to move about under his own steam more rather than the confinement of the yards. Ever tried to stomach tube a weanling to deliver activated charcoal & oil to the problem area - Lots of FUN!!! But all is well again & we are flying about the paddock as if nothing happened... KIDS!!! More than grateful this is the way things turned out for as we have experienced in the past that is not always the case...
Happy Stitches

Glad I only had to deal with colicky babies.

Glad he is on the mend and okay. I have heard terrible stories about horses with colic. My horsey daughter read your post and was most concerned!!

Ohhh poor pony. Glad he is feeling better though. What a blessing it is for you to have them.
