Cool Horse poop looks like fur!

Has anyone seen or heard of thier horses poop looking like fur balls? It's the weirdest thing and no one at the barn has seen such a thing. My horse has bouts with gas and sand colic which we have tried everything to resolve but we still need to keep a close eye on him's not just me who has seen the strange fur balls. Anyone have a similar experience or know what may cause this? Any help would be appreciated!! :)

Can you get a picture?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Does it come out furry or is the poop a day or so old. I had that happen when living in humid climate, poop would turn into fur balls within a day. Horse poop, cat, dog.... It's actually mold/ fungus.
