Looking for some advice from all you horse owners out there. Never really had a problem with colic until the horses were moved to a sandy area. I've had two mild cases of sand colic in the last two months. I bought a bucket of SandClear, my gelding likes it, but my picky eater mare won't touch the stuff. I mixed it in with a coffee can of Equine Senior and she smelled it and walked away. She came back and nibbled at the Equine Senior and then walked away for good. I'm trying to figure out how to get her to eat it and need some advice. Here's the three scenarios I'm down to. 1. Sneak it slowly into her feed. Problem - it's a monthly purge, so she needs to be able to eat it for a week straight once a month. 2. Withhold feed until she gets used to eating it. Problem - the whole withholding food thing. 3. Switch her to a daily sand colic supplement. Problem - expensive. Does anyone give Metamcuil? I've read that the generic stuff is a bit cheaper. It would be a daily supplement, so I could slowly build her up and could get it in a non--flavored form. Anything else I could try? She's the type horse where if she even smells a supplement she won't touch her grain. In fact, she really doesn't even like grain and usually leaves it for the fat gelding to clean up.
