Is your horse an older horse like mine?

That's really neat! Thanks for posting.

If I ever need to try it, I'll be glad that the girl I share my barn with works at a liquor store!

This brings up another question... can horses get drunk?!?!?!?! Lol

Considering their body weight, they'd probably have to drink a WHOLE lot before feeling tipsy lol!

My boy is 9 years old. He had this last summer when he was 8. He seems to be the worst between June 20 or so and the middle of August. I have kept riding him this summer to keep him in shape. I have been careful not to overheat him, to ride where I can get him in the water (he plunges right into the lake or creeks!) and he is sweating quiet well right now. He was damp and sticky awhile ago with salt crystals all over his neck, chest, shoulders and his face was dusted with it so it is really about 2 months that it is a problem. I keep him in a stall with a turn out paddock from June - August. He has a fan if he wants to stand in front of it. He loves to play in his auto waterer....dipping his muzzle in repeatedly!!

Want to bring this thread back to life as I think my mare might have this condition. She really doesn't sweat much at all, and is a big-time panter. She's competed in 60 mile rides but doesn't do well in heat and I'm looking for a solution for her. I've read that beer is relatively ineffective, but it looks like some of you have found otherwise. Any additional information/ideas would be awesome...anyone else used the One AC and had it work? Looks like more people are for the beer than the supplement. Haha. I'm willing to try anything. My mare is tough as nails and won't stop even if she's going to drop so that worries me!

OH...just wanted to add: I don't plan on doing anything without consulting my vet...just wanted to get some ideas in mind so that IF my horse has this condition, I'll have some knowledge about it and will know what questions to ask.
