I could totally identify with you, my cushonoid horse can't regulate his own body temp so he overheats super easily. Most of the time it is because he hasn't been drinking properly, if this was the case with your horse, i reccomend electrolytes. You can pick them up at like Tractor Supply they are apple flavored, as well as life savers!!!

Yay! Glad everything is ok! By the way, send some of that heat up the coast to BC, doesn't feel like summer here, more like a warm winter.

Yeah, I saw her drink but being hot all day did not do her any good. It was great having her at home to check on her throughout the night. She came around entirely at around 10 something and was eating normally. She's perfect today, and we are putting a shelter up as soon as I'm off work. Their pen is mostly shaded thoughout the day but I guess the time where it wasn't really got to her. We are definitely going to give her electrolytes just to be on the safe side in the future.

You can have the sun! I guess living in southern CA I take it for granted, but I'd take rain and clouds any day. I'm a sweatshirt junkie.
