As some of you know I have a 2yr old paint gelding. Well, I think there is something wrong with him. He doesn't act like a normal 2yr old. He is not active, he is constantly sleeping. He poops and pees alot. He is always standing spread out with his *ahem* out. All my horses are shedding, but not him, he isn't even close to shedding. Also, it takes him abnormally long to heal from wounds. Once he got a pretty good gash on his head about 6 months ago. It has yet to heal complete. Its close, but not completely. He is very very lathargic, he just stands around or sleeps. I constantly see him laying down. He doesn't run around like normal 2yr olds. He is very sickly looking, he looks
like he has a diease. He is a pature horse, staying out in a dirty (muddy) pasture. He eats alfalfa hay only, and he is pretty pudgy. I work with him every now and then and every time I do, he worries me even more. Just something about him isn't normal. I am going to start beinging him in and keeping him in the stall. So I can controll what he eats, drinks ect. And see where it goes from there. But my question is, does it sound like he has a sickness? Or does it sound like its just him?
