Frequent Peeing! Help!

We just got a standardbred gelding just over a week ago, he is amost 3 yrs old. Last time I saw him I noticed him peeing alot, it was almost leaking from his groin. He would take a pee stance and only like "half pee", then he would walk across his pen and pee again, not in the pee stance.
I am very worried and have looked on the internet regarding kidney, and cushings diseases. He is not showing any other symptoms except for a minor case of rain rot that we are taking care of.
Anyone seen this before? Should I look for other signs? I have consuted a vet and will most likely have them come look at him.
Thanks guys and gals!

my trainer's horse had one, but he had a fever and went off his grain, plus his sheath was very swollen

A vet exam is definitely warranted. Urinary tract infections, issues with the penis itself (masses, beans, etc), Insulin Resistance (Cushings would be pretty low on the list with a 4 yr old horse), EHV-1 infectin, etc etc. There are lots of possible causes and you will need some help to figure out what is going on.
