Everytime I work with Andy he pees numerous times. As soon as I get him out of the pasture, he will pee. Then when I ride him he will pee anther 2-3 times. This is all in a period of less than 2 hours! I have never worked with another horse that peed so much. And each time he will get all parked out and stand for a minute or more before he actually starts to pee. Also today when I rode him in the roundpen he kept stopping to "pee" but he never would do anything. I would cue him to walk and he would take one or two steps and then spread out like he was going to pee again. I waited for atleast 3 minutes several times to see if he would pee but he never did! We did this stop and pretend to pee thing for like 20 minutes before I got off. I started to lunge him and he stopped doing it. I took him out of the round pen to ride and he started to do it again!
Is it possible that he knows if he pretends to pee that he can stop working? Can horses get UTI's or other urinary problems? Should I be concerned?
Thanks for any help!!
