Haffy (Half Pint) got a minor impaction colic yesterday,and I spent all day out with her, making sure she was okay. It has been raining all day today...and so her pen is really mucky. I feel bad for Rosie and Haffy during bad weather, so they get extra hay.

A super mucky pen.

"Oh, hello there!"

Half Pint is 20 years old now. She is showing some signs of PPID (cushings disease) but that is unspecified until confirmed by testing. She has coliced (impaction) three times this past year. We have figured out that the culprit is sand (she really likes to lick the dirt) and so she will be taking the supplement Sandclear to allow her to digest the sand without it getting stuck in her digestive tract and large intestine, therefore causing bowel problems.

I hope this fixes her colic issues, because with her getting older, it is more dangerous for colic's to be fatal. Sand colic's typically don't cause fatalities, but it is possible. 

I hope to post again soon!



  1. Colorado is so dry most years, I hate to complain about rain but... I do feel bad for all the horses standing out there in the mud. Mystyc is a princess and doesn't like to get wet or dirty. I know she's miserable :(

    Hope Half Pint is feeling better!

  2. I feel the same way. I was thinking "This is way too much rain!" and I am from Florida!
    Haffy is doing much better, thank you for asking. :)
