We untacked and put her sheet on and put her in her stall, where she immediately laid down. Something I've never seen Lissell do before in her stall. Hmmm. Somethings not right. Then she starts groaning and looking at her belly. Oh please Lissell, please don't colic! So I sit with her for awhile, she's not rolling and has normal vital signs. It was around 4pm, so I called my vet before he finished up for the day. I ended up giving her a 1/2 tube of UlcerGard (it's all I had) and some banamine. Well I guess me messing with her mouth was enough to bother her and she got right up and started begging for food. I gave her some hay and checked on her awhile later and decided she looked good enough to get half of her dinner.
She trotted out to the field with the other horses and made some grumpy faces at the gelding, so I figured all was well again. I kept an eye on her while I finished feeding the barn, and checked on her again before I left, and all seemed ok.
Oh Lissell. The drama. You scared the begeezes out of me.
