How can you tell if your mare is just colicing or trying to abort? Last night when I went to the barn my mare was acting colicy. She was standing outside and half of her dinner was not eaten. I thought this was aweful strange for her. I walked her a little then put her back then she tried to go down. Luckily I was right there then I got her up and we started walking. Everytime we would stop for a minute she would swish her tail a lot up and down also side to side, she would look at her side, stomp her feet and throw her head around she was obviously in pain. We called the vet and in the mean time she passed 3 piles within a half hour before the vet made it. Then the vet checked her, cleaned her rectum and said she is definantly pregnant as the foal was kicking. then he tubed her and gave her a shot of banamine within 10 minute she seemed fine. She is currently 5 months pregnant. What could have caused this? We have had her for 6 years and she has never done this before. Was she trying to abort or was she just colicing? Waht is the difference? She was doing a lot of tail swishing is what had alarmed me. Any thoughts?

Maybe the foal was in an uncomffy position for the mare. But it sounds like colic to me.
