It's been almost a month since Estes colicked ... she's still pretty weak and not putting on any weight. She's still pooping sand and uncomfortable off and on during the day.
She's been on beet pulp all summer, Mom has added senior feed to the aminos that she was already feeding and the horses are now on free-feed hay. I'm taking Estes out for short rides only once a week (when I'm up there). The vet told us it could take a month for all of the sand to clear, but I think it's going to take a little longer. The psyllium seems to make her more comfortable, but she doesn't pass much sand with it. The sand moves better when she's not on the psyllium, but she's more uncomfortable.
So...I know she was on death's door, but does anyone have any idea how long it will take her to start feeling more like herself? Any suggestions?
