Victor colicked last night

I got a call from Cristy at about 8:30 and said he was acting funny. So my mom and I went out and one of the other boarders was walking him in the arena. He was all sucked up and wanted to roll. Lorena came right out with the medicine and I walked him for a good 2 1/2 hours until he started feeling better. We were there until 11:00 pm. But he seems to be okay now.

Colic is always scary. My trainer lost her hunter/jumper to colic and he ruptured his colon because nobody did anything about it for five hours. Very sad stuff.


  1. Lost a yearling Perch/Morgan to colic. Purdue thought maybe she had something congenital going on. Colic is scary and heartbreaking. Hope all is well and you can find out what caused it. Good luck.

  2. Aww, that's horrible. And only a year old. :(
