I have noticed he drinks a lot of water, but I don't think its a crazy amount. He is not dehydrated, his poop is not always "cow flop" but most of the time I see it, it is and sometimes it can be really bad (like water at first.) I sometimes hear his stomache gurgling and he swishes his tail often -not sure if these are relevant, he has always swished his tail around. He is 14 y/o appaloosa/TB. He is also UTD on all wormers and shots.
He is on:
1 cup grain.
2 cups beet pulp.
1/4 scoop of hoffmans horse minerals.
Alfalfa and (dryer) grass hay. (they get as much hay as they want there are about 6 horses in the field together and the fields are pretty bare)
He also gets all the water he could possibly drink and there is a salt lick in the field I see him use sometimes.
He seems to have a good amount of energy, his muscle is good, coat is shiney, can't say much for mane and tail seeing as he is an appy lol...
