Hubby and I have a professional hauling business and on a number of occasions people have stopped him to say the trailer is "leaking".

One of my horses does this almost every day. He has lots of room. Its just something he does.

My friend's horse does this from time to time. I heard that horses poop in their water when they are upset about something (defiance?). Have you changed your horse's feed, worked her hard, or not worked her at all recently?

She has only done it once and nothing changed ... but next time if she does it again ill see if I notice anything that has changed.

It is amazing how they can do some things. I have a stock trailer so instead of windows is has open bars... Chloe will push her butt up there and poop, so as Im driving poop is flying!!!! Im sure the drivers behind me love that!!!
Oh my goodness, this made me laugh. Just the mental pictures I got was hysterical.

Athena poops in her water bucket and/or grain bucket if I don't clean her stall everyday.
I figured it out once when we had to wait about a week for our shavings shipment to come in, and so I couldn't completely gut her stall. She would get mad, and would poop in her water AND food bucket every day. And the food bucket is bolted to her stall wall, so that was a joy to clean. :roll: At first, I couldn't figure it out, but as soon as we got new shavings and I completely cleaned her stall she stopped.
I can't complain, at least she's figured out a way to tell me what she wants, and it keeps me from putting her stall off. Lol

My horse does this as well, cleaning poop soup in 80 degree weather really exemplifies the sophistication of our sport, doesn't it?
I keep a 30 gallon bin of fresh water on the opposite side of the paddock so he can drink if he poops his automatic waterer.

Sorry to double post but nothing has changed ... she just has good aim OR hates me lol

Lol it happens! My filly has never gone in her auto waterer, but when I suppliment with a bucket in her stall (during freezing weather etc.) she has dropped a load in that. Even that is kind of weird though because she has a spot in her stall and she poops there 99% of the time and it's in the opposite corner from where I stick the bucket. From the picture above that looks like multiple poops! I'd say she has great aim :O
