can you ID your horses poop?

I don't want you all to think I'm a freak but I regularly walk my paddock. I have four horses in one paddock together and the four that are together... I can actually identify who's poop is who's... I know that sounds freaky but since I had so many problems with Pistol and his sand colic a few years ago, i started walking my paddock every few days to see the conistency of his poop then i started paying attention to everyone elses and now that's one of the things I do to check there health.... am I a freak? can you identify your guys poop???

I only have 2 horses but yes... I'm a poop snooper too. I know who's is who's this came after Dumas Coliced.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Heh , I bet most anybody that cleans a stall or only has a couple of horses can do the same thing, so don't feel too weird. I know what my "boys" "doo" looks like and it's good to be familiar. Means you're a good horse parent.

Haha, Willy's resemble oversized rabbit pellets. He's a nugget dropper.

Horse whisperers don't whisper to the horse....they listen to the horses' whispers.

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ~William Shakespeare
