Possible Non-sweater

Has anyone tried equi-winner patches for non-sweating issues? Thanks!

We use One AC and it works pretty well. I don't know about the equi-winner patches though.

May sound strange but a vet recommended a can of beer added to the feed. When I was in Louisiana we had a horse come down from Vermont during the high summer and his sweat mechanism turned off. Surprised the heck out of me when the vet told the owners to add a 12 oz can of beer to his feed (once a day).

It took a week or so but eventually the horse started sweating again though it didn't seem to always be enough.

I know several folks who give the 1 can of beer at night. We were just talking about this last night in fact. Seems the Malt beers (cheaper the better) are what most have found success with. My neighbor's 17 h warmblood did not sweat a drop until she started this nightly routine. And it is OK with the drug tests run at some shows.

I just got some One AC to try. My horse is sweating but he should be sweating a bit more. Someone mentioned to me about the beer. I may try it. Thanks everyone!

Denise tried the patches on Red before we got him without a lot of success.
In the summer I give him a beer a day and about 2 tbs of Epsom salt. We've also been told to bathe him in baking soda by an old timer, going to try that this year.

Im in Lousiana and it is a huge problem here. Esp after last summer when it was so hot. I know several horses that 1/2 can cheap malt beer seemed to help I'd say about 50% of them

By the way, petty, I'm in Louisiana as well.

I've had the beer solution work with the one non-sweater I knew.
