really loose stool

Will hot weather cause horses to get loose stools? One of our mares and our colt have loose stool, but are acting fine. They are all on the same diet they have been for years the only thing new is how hot it has been. I noticed it yesterday and am keeping an eye on it and if it keeps up I will call my vet.

I think just about anything can cause a change in the consistency of a stool depending on the horse however I would definitely keep an eye on them and probably do a temperature check. Make sure they are drinking plenty of fluids and question what they've been eating. Do they eat off the ground? Do you have any weeds that could cause issues? While they are acting fine and it's probably nothing, I still generally will keep a close watch when the stools are involved but that's because I have a colicer.
