Ew- he now urinates while training
I don't know if I am working with my horse more than when I got him, if he is more relaxed, or what (more on that later) but he urinates two to three times when I am working with him.
His stream is clear. It is strong. However, he does a smal amount... then stops..... then a few minutes later, a small amount more....
Then a large amount.... the stream is the same speed and strength all times...this stop and go counts as the three times- he does not do this whole pattern three times.
My vet says he is not showing any other signs of UTI or Bladder Infection (tenderness, temperature, lethargy, odd odor to the urine).
So I am wondering- has he just gotten comfortable enough to go around me? His "boy stuff" does tend to hang out during grooming which I know means he is relaxed. He is a gelding and was cut during his first year but not sure exactly when.
