Why does my horse poop look like this?
The last week or so my horse's poop has looked really broken down after it has sat for a couple of hours. The only thing that has changed is I got him a slat lick. I noticed that he has stopped licking his mineral block once I got him a salt lick though. Currently he is on approximately 2 and a half flakes of hay (they are really heavy flakes) 3 cups of Omolene 100, 5 oz of flax seed, a scoop of bug check, and a 1/4 cup canola oil. Is he missing something in his diet or maybe getting too much of something? http://www.horseforum.com/members/34.../s-51f0-32480/

That looks like it has been gone through by birds. Pretty common here.

i agree. with the increased salt intake he is probably also drinking more water.. making the poo less hard/dry

Well that makes me feel a lot better. We do have a lot of birds but it has never affected his poop but if its softer with since he's drinking more water than it 2 and 2 together it makes sense.

I've seen bugs and beetles dismantle a pile in fairly short order if the 'texture' is right for them.

That's what I was thinking loosie. Gotta love a healthy population of dung beetles!
