hey all, my mare coliced on me, i got her over that now she's not herself. she's always been a big eater, acted like she was starved. now she is just nibbling at her food and hay if she will eat at all. she's always been out in pasture now she will go out get a couple of bites of grass if at all and go back to the barn and stand in the corner. could she still be having stomic pain or what? her baby will be 1 month old tommarrow, she's not making much milk, the baby will eat feed and hay. is this normal for such a young one to do? oh would it hurt to spray fiy spray just on her legs or what should i use for flys since she nursing. thanks for all advise. mispie
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!
Please note that posting identical questions in different locations on the board ties up board resources and will also result in less chance of an answer being received as persons are not willing to post multiple answers to the same question.
Please note that opinions, product information, advice or suggestions posted on this bulletin board are not necessarily those of the management at Equine-Reproduction.com nor does the maintenance of the post position indicate an implicit or any endorsement of that information, opinion or product.
Further, although we have the greatest respect for the posters offering assistance here, you are advised to seek a consultation with your veterinarian prior to using information obtained from this board if it is of a veterinary nature.Proud to be sponsored and supported by:
