 Question:  Someone asked me if sweet feed makes him sweat.  I never thought
 that connection before.  Is there anything in feeding sugars/ molasses and a
 horse sweating?
 P.S.  I enjoy your articles in Trail Blazer...thank you!

The higher energy use will produce more body heat and cause more sweat. But
sweat, as long as water and electrolytes are fed, is not a bad thing. Maybe
Heidi or Susan have more in-depth views on this. In our horses, one that
doesn't sweat scares me to death.
