Winston Update

What his piles are supposed to look like
This morning Mom found a stall full of normal poop. I think horse people are the only ones who get excited by good poop. His gums were pink and you could actually see refill, which was not happening yesterday. The scary part was that Winston's feet were cool this morning showing how warm they were yesterday. Definitely take the time to know how your horses feet feel. He got to wear his ice boots yesterday and twice today as further precaution.

Will stand for hay :)

The vet called twice today, once before Mom went to work  and again with the blood test results. His white cell count was off so she wants us to take his temperature for the next few days. It was actually a little low yesterday at 96. He tends to be around 99.

Back to moving Rosemary around

We think it was a gas colic because when she tubed him a ton came out. Still can't say what caused it, so we will focus on fixing his gut.We are breathing easier seeing him acting normal again. But you always wonder when the next thing will happen. Thank you everyone for keeping him in your thoughts!


  1. How scary!! I hope he is back to 100% soon.

  2. Oh I'm so glad that he's feeling better!

  3. This crazy weather has had me really worried about colic - 70 one day, 30 the next... Glad Winston is on the mend!!
