Tip
These photos have captions to express any thoughts I have on the picture. The idea here is for YOU to get ideas, so grab a cup of coffee, darken the room, grab a pen and paper to write notes, and sit back and enjoy. I have more shots and I’ll add them later as I have time.

Click on any picture to see it in full size with the captions. Please enjoy and add any questions or comments below.

Below are pictures of a horse with mild colic showing the horse laying flat out – an unusual position for him. You can also see him laying down and looking back at his side. The one of him standing in his stall shows him with his penis hanging half way out which is very common for male horses to do with a belly ache.
