    well we are at day two of souvie being on 6cc of dex and watching him closely. The 6cc is where we had breathing issues last time, however, that was when we did a drop from 8 to 6. This time it was a drop from 7 after being on the 7cc for 6 days. Let’s hope he can hold out and still maintain being lowered. Other then that everything with him has been great. No issues, no impacted colic signs, grazing and eating normal again. Drinking normal everything is right, just nervous because it was day 3 dose day he started having issues on the 6cc and today would be the day 3 dose. He gets his meds at 5pm feeding every night.

    So far today he is still sweating like crazy, but it’s a very hot day today. He also has a crazy hunger streak too. He ate a lot of alfalfa today for some reason. In a half hour he will get another 6cc dose his day 3 dose. It’s raining now so hopefully he is cooling down.

    Buy a misting hose and hang it outside the run in in the shade. That's what I'd do. You can turn it on around noon and let it cool him and the area.

    We have rain here daily. Souvie runs from the water if he can. Even in the rain he will go into his barn. If I am cleaning his water barrels and he wants a drink he won’t even walk in the water on the ground till it’s gone. For some reason he is scared of water lol

    When Foxy's IR was at its worst he didn't like baths. He was very sensitive to touch which included water, especially cold water.
