I was at work last Tuesday morning and it was about 10:15 when I got the phone call that all horse owners dread. “He’s colicing” the voice on the other line said. My trainer had just given the horse a work out, had a good ride and her working student had un-tacked him in the stall. He looked like he wanted to roll in the stall but when he wouldn’t get up right away she knew something was wrong. I was out the door in 10 minutes flat and on the way to the barn. I called my vet on the way and told him to meet me there.
