If you’ve personally experienced colic, you know how scary it is. That late night phone call to the vet, the decision to go through with surgery, the constant “I’m never going to let this happen again” playing over and over again in your mind.

If you’ve been-there-done-that, whether it was a minor gas colic or a serious impaction requiring surgery, you may enter your horse to become the “Spokes-Horse” for the 2013 Colic Awareness Month in June. As the face of Colic Awareness Month, your horse will encourage owners to take steps to prevent colic and to learn to recognize the early warning signs that their horses may be at risk.
