Hi. I live in Alaska and we have had a good riding season this year. Now fall is almost done and I am sad to see Winter around the corner, really we will have snow before Halloween. My quarter horse coliced on the 18th of this month, she is also in foal and I was told by my vet she will slip the foal. I am sad but ok with that, because she is still standing. She is eating, drinking, not as much as I would like, but she is still alive. My question is if she slips the foal are there any signs I can see. Right now she is laying down a lot, not rolling and acting lathargic.
We are still in the 80's here and I would like to switch a few days with you - Alaska would be nice. How fall along is she? If the mare is a few months along you might see a small fetus but if she is early breed you will not see anything. Be careful to watch the mare for laminitis after this episode.
