Ridiculously heavy sweater

Hey all. I've noticed since I first brought him home that whiskey seems sweat a lot easier than everyone else in the pasture. He has access to shade, fresh water and mineral block. He drinks a ton of water and definitely isn't dehydrated. I'm out here now and everyone else is relatively dry and he looks like someone just sprayed him off with a hose.

Should I be concerned? I can post pics as soon as I get home. Still at barn and on my phone right now

Could it be nerves or anxiety? Yeah I know that sounds like bs. But I've seen nervous horses sweat like crazy.

On a nother idea, some do just sweat more. Our really gray horse sweats more the out really dark gray. Why? Idk.

Hmm.... he's never struck me as the nervous type. However, his two best buds were trailered off site today. He wasnt screaming or anything for them. But he did stay by the gate the entire afternoon just watching. So maybe he is an internallizer.

No other horse was wet at all today, so that's what struck me as a little strange. It was like a cold sweat and lather. He didnt feel hot to the touch. He was eating/drinking fine and gums were normal and I could hear gut sounds so I don't think it was colic or anything. He was great besides a sort of "bleh" personality (for him- he's usually a crazy 4 year old) and the crazy sweating. Here's some pics of him as soon as I got him out of the pasture. And pics of Drifter as well. So you can see the crazy sweating vs the not sweating at all. There was a nice breeze today. Really wasnt that bad outside!

I don't know about where you are but it was really hot here this week. My horse was sweating under his mane and the fleabit grey in the pasture with him (not mine) was dripping with sweat. Hopefully the weather will cool off soon.

Poor guy!

How are the flies? We had a huge hatch last week and my mare went absolutely insane.
She was drenched in sweat. She goes especially crazy when horseflies show up.

I caught it the first day and DOUSED them with homemade spray three times a day and it helped.

Oops. Did I not spell it right or something? Sorry. Had a long day today. Guess I could have worded it differently.
