Cow like poop!
I have a fairly new horse who has always had runny poop. It will be better then worse. Let me give you some background.
She is 3 almost 4 years, she is a TWH. She has been in the pasture with another mare and a gelding. She is LOW man in the pecking order. She is bullied some.
When she is in the pasture I have seen regular poop, but when she is in the stall eating or we trail ride she poops A LOT and it is very runny like a cow. We got her some probotics thinking the flora in ther gut was off, but she has finished up the container of probotics and the runny poop was just as bad this past Saturday riding the trails.
We sold the bossy mare and now this young mare is fairly equal in status to the gelding. She has been bullied like I said, but she will stand her ground when she is.. she is no pushover. She is the SWEETEST most affectionate mare. She does not seem in any ill health from the runny poop, in fact she drinks alot, in the pasture and every bit of water she comes across on the trail she has to at least taste. She is growing well, We have had her since the fall and she has gained some much needed weight. She looks GREAT now.
Any advise would be appreciated!
