For the past two days now (8/13,8/14) my horse has had loose, watery poops. They are a nice healthy green color but come out looking more like cow pies than horse apples!
The weird thing is that he had dribble stuck down between his butt cheeks and down his legs that looks awful. The poop in his stall and that he did in front of me didn't seem to do that but, to me, the gross stuff to get stuck in his hair like that is probably bad?
He's got his normal voracious appetite and seems be himself. He was amazing and very forward and perky in our lesson yesterday. He was less so today ... I think I am most likely reading too much into things and over analyzing but he seemed sort of uncomfortable which might be unrelated.
I've asked our trainer/BO to take his temperature tomorrow but assuming there is no temp or change -- how many days of diarrhea before I should call out a vet?
Edit: Yesterday (first day of watery poops) BO thought it might just be the new batch of hay and the changing of the seasons. He gets Omega-3 Horse Shine supplement daily which has a sand colic prevention. I'm hoping I'm just being paranoid but reading past posts on the subject here people seemed to suggest vets were a necessary call!
