[RC] elytes, fog, sponging and sweating - A. Perez

 I just caught up on the current elyte thread on the archives
and have a couple of questions.

1.  Elytes: some horses need 'em, some don't.  How do you tell?
   If a horse sweats heavily, should they be elyted?  Are
   obvious symptoms of low elyte levels?

2.  Over-elyting: how much is too much?  Symptoms?

3.  Re: post on fog and sponging: do any of you take your
   temperature to determine if cooling is needed, or is it 
   assumed cooling is needed when riding far?

4.  I have never seen blood pressure discussed, though in
   human medicine it is one of the key indicators: is it too
   hard to take a horses blood pressure, or just not
