A friend of mine has a horse (8 year old OTTB who she has had since he was 3) who has had on and off colicking, had a colon displacement surgery in December (had the area tacked to stomach wall), started colicking again about 5 weeks ago and finally had a colon resection done 3 weeks ago. The horse just got his staples out last night. He's just not doing well, in our opinion. The owner is a wreck and the vet can't find anything clinically wrong - his blood work is good, he's pooping fine, drinking fine but he's just not into eating right now. I go over daily and hand walk him and let him graze but even yesterday he wasn't totally into grazing although he did eat as we walked along but not with the normal gusto of a horse. Today I'm going to go over and set up some ground poles now that the staples are out to try to make things interesting as we walk without exerting him but we don't know what else to do. He's getting TC Senior and the owner has tried it wet, soupy and dry and some meals he gobbles it up and others....eh. I got there yesterday about 2 hours after he was fed and his bucket was mostly full of his lunch and even if I went to hand feed him, he didn't want it. He will eat hay - he's happy with that. So any thoughts on what else to do? He's on stall rest with hand walking allowed and she lets him lose in the barn at night while she's cleaning up and he will wander around, picking up stray strands of hay. But he's just not eating like a horse should.
