do u think?  our horse died of that out to pasture at the age of 22.  he had been retired for 8 months in central california....i always wonder if it was the stress of the change, but geez don't they love to be just horses in a pasture?  It will haunt me forever.

Sorry to hear you lost your horse to cholic.  Just not fair that a horse can be at home in comfort and being cared for and still be struck with this.

I'd like to add that Lasix strips a human body of Potassium and other electrolytes that support the heart's healthy functioning, what's to say it doesn't also do that to horses?

So young to have been through all of that.  Colic too.

Oh no.  I know Bella.  She was a very nice filly.  Kind of sad I'm just finding out now.  RIP pretty girl!
