" I like big butts....and I cannot lie....." I just thought if I had eyes and noses, why not butts ? My girls' butts have never been that important to me, just so long as they're working (no body's colicking) or such. Everything is flowing smoothly, but not too smoothly. As I keep my girls on my property, I am able to keep close track of such matters. Having had brushes with colick, especially in winter months, I do keep a watchful eye. One thing I have noticed this year is that a salt block really does help. My horses always drink less during winter months and keeping diligent about the salt block has made a huge difference. Funny enough it is important to pay attention to those horse apples in the pasture. Too dry, too loose could mean a serious problem.
