    Hahahah my brain has been slow today so I wasnt even thinking when I put the title. Guess I could have thrown in a "horse is" at the beginning of the title haha.

    Flys are bad here, but I spray him with fly spray and hasnt seemed like he's been bothered too much. It makes sense some horses sweat more than others and I knew that, it just weirded me out that he was the only one of the 20 that looked like he had just been swimming.

    I guess all I would really need to worry about would be dehydration right? He is good on that front. He drinks and pees more than any horse I've seen. But all the ones I usually encounter are shy - he is not. He's like Move I gotta pee, and will just go. He also pees if you whistle- which I was told is a racehorse thing. I thought that was really weird.

    But thanks everybody! Guess it checks out okay. I was just concerned it could be indicative of another problem. Each "big sweat" day seems a little worse then the episode before it.

    HI Drifting, excessive sweating can be one of the first signs that the horse is not getting enough salt. Do you feed him salt in his feed every day? If not, he should be getting 2 Tbsp EVERY DAY of plain sodium chloride (normal table salt without the iodine)
    Never rely on salt licks they simply do NOT get enough salt from these
