Pucky has since as far as I know had ups and downs when it came to colic, sometimes it is quite severe all of a sudden. Since she is very small the vet can't do much 'at the spot' so she has to be taken to the clinic.
These 'attacks' usually are predicted by a period of eating 'dirty stuff'.
Real dirt, but also manure, twigs, leaves, sand and occasionally 'pebbles'
Right now we have been able to 'avoid' the colic 'attack' by giving 'sand clear' which cleans the sand (and according to Pucky is really disgusting).
I try to give her as much hay as possible, during nights she is in the stable (which is not likely to going to change according to the owner of Pucky) I give her as much hay as is allowed (by the owner) and some extra (secretly).
During days she is at the paddock with all the other horses, and she is not often allowed to eat from the hay, I got someone at the stable as far as putting little piles of hay on de ground for Pucky to eat from.
In between 1100 and 1500 the horses are on the sand, away from the hay (not allowed to enter) except for Pucky who always gets to eat in that time
Well, she gets as much hay as possible I wouldn't think it is hunger, most of all because she eats the dirty stuff, while a fresh pile of hay is next to it...
Is it some sort of deficiency? Minerals? (she has a block of salt in her stable, and probably also in the paddock).
The problem right now is that she doesn't eat the hay in her stableâ€¦ I found it all over the place today
So now: I'm searching for step two to fight off the colic before it starts (do you know what I mean... boy my english...)
Thank you all so much!
