I don't know where you live, but AC does not tell people who called them even if the person asks. Most likely he figured it out on his own, since you're the most obvious.
Has the horse been abandoned? If not, you could be in serious trouble for trespassing, especially since the owner told you to stay away. If you've taken the horse home with his blessing, that's another thing entirely.
If you don't know anything about the horse's history or possible medical conditions, your very first call should have been to a vet. This horse's physical and possible metabolic issues needed to be determined prior to you putting him on a feeding regimen. The anal leakage could be happening because the food you've been giving him is too rich or the wrong type.
Not only does this horse need medical attention to determine the best feeding regimen, he also needs his feet done, sheath cleaned, and teeth floated. Plus, he'll need to have his feet done every 6 to 8 weeks, and yearly floating and sheath cleaning.
I wish you luck, but please call a vet and have a complete physical done on the old guy.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
