Someone I know has about 8 horses. He usually doesn't really cool the horses off after he works them pretty hard. One time he came back to the barn and unsaddled the horse, who was breathing very heavily (her whole body was moving) and was drenched in sweat, plus probably very hot. He just hosed her down with cool water and then turned her out to pasture. I was just wondering - isn't this bad for a horse? To be really hot, bathed with cold water?
Just wondering ;)
