[RC] second sweat - k s swigart

Terre said:

My horse has twice now produced a "second sweat",
due to coming in too fast and not cooling down
Obviously I need to either come in slower, cool
out better or both--I'm just concerned that there
is an additional element I'm missing.

I have heard that a "second sweat" is actually a function of some kind
of electrolyte imbalance (if I remember correctly, it was something to
do with potassium, but I am not sure).  You may want to look into this.

Orange County, Calif.
