UPDATE post #..31... I'm just looking for some more input in to turbo. I HAVE a vet coming this afternoon so don't jump on me about that please. However - I like to be more informed than not. So turbo my 9yr old TB went for a p on friday when he came off the trailer and near the end there was two distinct spurts of brown/red colour in his urine. Previous to the colour coming the urine was normal, pale yellow colour slightly cloudy at time (which is a excessive of a mineral i can't remember). I've been trying to get a sample for the vet when he comes, this is proving tricky however lol. Yesterday though, i did give him a big bucket of molassed water to give him a "flush" so to speak - he drunk about 45L. I did see him urinate after this and it was clear water (hence why i didn't bother getting a sample). He seems fine, breathing, pulse normal, can't find my thermometer so can't take his temp (will be buying a new one). He is fine in himself - in fact we had a good game of tag this morning and he also competed Saturday morning in some showjumping and did really well. He doesn't seem to be in any pain when he urinated both when it ws coloured and when it was water. Stools are normal to slightly runny - but he is on spring grass so i expect that. Sheath - i don't think is swollen but its so hard to tell. No bean in end - i checked and gave him a good clean. So i've read on urine diseases and can come up with a couple of causes. 1- strongyle worms 2- stone 3 - infection in his urinary system somewhere gah - isn't it just horrible trying to monitor urine for a horse in 24/7 turnout (no i don't have a stall/yard). I have suspected something may not have been 100% in the past some time ago, but he came right again in a day or so - and again nothing seemed to be bothering him Any thoughts anyone?
