I just purchased a horse that breaths loudly with minimal exercise. I was told by the seller that he is a great trail horse and in perfect health, he was just never "wind broke". Well he is a great trail horse and doesn't seem to have any problem keeping up, but to hear him breath you would think he's about to hit the ground. I have also noticed that when he eats his grass, he dips it in his water first and sometimes looks to be having a hard time swallowing. Not sure if the two are related, but would like to know if anybody else has had these issues. I am going to have a vet exam done on him, but was curious to know if anybody has heard of a horse "not wind broke".
