You should have the mare evaluated by a veterinarian. A bulletin board such as this cannot possibly take all of the environmental and other variables into account. The mare may be perfectly OK, or she may be in serious trouble. Call your vet and discuss it with them!

Agreed,that you should consult your vet. With that said. There can be many things affecting her. Did you consult a vet to begin with ? Is the vet the one that helped to get her though the colic or did you treat her yourself ? She may have some sort of blockage that needs to get moving through her system. She may need a dose or two of mineral oil to get her system moving again. Is the mare pooping ? whats it like ? Is the mare drinking ? Make sure that baby has full access to water and hay. Make sure that neither are dehydrating. It would be worth a vet call if you have any doubts to reassure you that things are normal or if they need more attention. Don't wait for a emergency to make the call, have her checked out.
