Question - Have any of you experienced Colic type symptoms when your filly or mare is in heat?

Last week, my 3 year old filly was in heat. She is very quiet, and the only sign was the messy back end. Friday was a very hot & humid day - got to the barn in the am, she was lying down not feeling well. Ate 1/2 her grain for breakfast, and was holding some in her mouth. I hosed her to cool her off - (outside temp was only low 80's, but was humid) There was a lot of air in the barn and she has a dutch door. Gave her a little banamine, walked her - she pooped normal looking poop, and within 20 minutes got over her "colic". Did same thing in the pm - same treatment. And then she was fine. I am not convinced this is a true colic. She is fine after a little bit of banamine, hosing when it is warm, always have normal poop, not fed a high starch diet, feed is of good quality, only getting about 4 qts of grain/day....

I started a journal to track this as this is not the first time she has acted like this.

Do you think it could be PMS - cramps - folicle that will not release the egg?

Do any of you have filly's/mares that do this and how do you treat? Do you feed a supplement that can ease the discomfort of her cycle?

Thanks for your help!

It's kinda hard to have "PMS cramps" when there's no menstrual cycle... :-)

Colic-like symptoms are however sometimes associated with soreness of the follicle immediately prior to ovulation. As such, once the mare ovulates, the soreness passes.
