what does collicked mean?

what does it mean when you say that a horse collicked? does anyone know what that means? if you do, please answer.

Colic means abdominal pain. In people, it is identified by where it happens…like renal colic is abdominal pain caused by a kidney stone passing down a ureter which is painful. In horses, colic refers to pain that comes from somewhere in the intestines. When you say a horse “colicked”, it means the horse went through an episode of abdominal pain because of some problem in the intestines. It can be as simple as a pocket of gas, or as serious as a twisting of the intestine and strangulation of the blood supply to that part of the tissue.
Since you don’t know whether it is simple gas, or a life threatening twist when the horse shows signs of colic, it is always taken seriously.

Source(s): I’m an RN and horse owner.

when a horse is ‘colicked’ it means that the horse has a condition called colic. colic is what happens when a horse eats something bad for them such as sand, or freshly mowed grass.

since horses cannot vomit, the bad things that they ate become blocked in their intestines. usually this can be fixed by slowly walking the horse around until it does a dropping, but if this cannot be done because the colic is very bad, the horse may need to undergo surgery.

if the colic is bad enough the horse can even die. hopefully this doesnt happen though.

here is a website that will explain to you in more depth what colic is:

Great answers from Dominic, Jaysinh, ixiruxa and others. I think as far as we are concerned Love is good one. But not the foolish emotion we regard as Love. Love is a state of Being. One who becomes at one with Love becomes truly Free. We should get away from the idea that Love is a vague state of mind or something to tie friends and relatives together. In it’s highest state it sets people free in the realisation that God is All. Ever since the dawn of civilisation mankind has searched the meaning behind lifes challenges and trials, the purpose of religion and science and the Why of Existence. This searching is really man’s innate spiritual drive to transmute the ‘stone’ of basic matter and consciousness into the ‘gold’ of Freedom-consciousness and existence. This Earth is really a classroom of experience designed to provide the answers (or meaning) that mankind needs, although he might not neccessarily want it! After our graduation we are given further experiences and higher meanings that we might apply to assist us in our goal of Spiritualising matter and consciousness back to God, as Conscious Gods.
