Welcome to Day 2 – Introduction to Colic

We hope everyone has now “settled in” and you are now familiar with all the parts of the course (If not, just take a bit of time and click on several of the links to orient yourself to the parts of the course).

Day 2 now starts our learning journey by an introduction to “colic” in horses through a practical approach.  We first start by taking a journey through the horse’s digestive tract to learn about basic anatomy and how the parts work.  This helps you to understand the normal functioning of the gut and will help you understand when things go wrong (and the implications for the horse).  Sometimes things go wrong as a result of our management decisions, so it is important to learn how to make the best choices for our horses.
