Just yesterday I was dizzy from dehydration.
And that is my point. Colic rates climb when the weather acts strange. Much of this is related to horses not drinking normally during major weather swings. It was -13 last night and they are calling for almost 50 degrees this weekend. That qualifies as major.
Heated troughs and buckets are amazing. If you don’t have them though don’t despair.
It is amazing what a gallon of hot water added to a bucket will do to improve the palatability.
That goes for barn cats too.
