    He needs a vet.

    Another question. My BO just put lime down on the field and I don't know if Jackson(the colt) has ever been around the stuff. It's suppose to be completely safe for horses but could that be a factor in this?

    I would eliminate the sweet feed. Hay, minerals and salt only then if he needs extra for growth/work add something without molasses/sugar crap. Let him beg all he wants for the sugar. He's a kid - he doesn't know any better. :)

    I would not ride him. At all. He's too young.

    When he's hot and sweaty is his heart racing as well? Have you taken his temperature and respiratory rate? I would document those for the vet if you haven't already.

    I would also check on him overnight. Hay and water only in his stall/paddock.

    I hope it turns out to be a simple thing. Good luck.

    I'll be interested to know what the vet thinks as well.
