[RC] Too much peeing & pooping - GarnerT

I've noticed that my horse, when he is not in good condition, will often
poop every 5 minutes & sometimes it can be a little loose.  During a ride,
if he is stressed, it will loosen up, but it usually firms up as we
progress.  As for peeing so much, maybe he just drinks a lot of water!

I would keep training & riding him & see how he does.  I agree with the
previous post about the loss of electrolytes, etc., but if you train Long
Slow Distance, he should be able to adjust if he has no medical problems.

Just keep an eye out for him & ride.
