RE: [RC] What does this tell you? - Dolores Arste

Thanks to all who replied. I had come up with the following. Any other
thoughts welcome.

E-lyte imbalance and resulting muscle fatigue caused by A) long trailer ride
(likely never truly recovered so started the ride slightly dehydrated not
enough to show up on skin pinch) - rider error - put e-lytes in food not
syringe did not double dose should have due to the length of the trailer
ride, b) no food on trail resulting in the need for more e-lytes to support
the amount of water he was drinking and c) no food on trail - Rider error -
should have stopped longer when there was food and carried food for him to
give on trail
After lots of e-lytes, 6 doses within 4 hours after our 1 hour was up, he
was fine and looked especially fine the next day.
