So I moved both my horses to new barns last week, and it's been great. But, within a couple days of each move, the respective BO's have contacted me with the same question: how much does this horse normally drink? Well, I'm not really sure. I hardly ever stall them for a full 24 hour period, but if you fill up a bucket at night, no matter how late, it will always be dry by morning, no matter how early, and usually after breakfast the water vanishes pretty quickly as well. I always knew my two drank more than the morgans, but they also eat more. The morgans get obese if they THINK about food, so it never bothered me that they drank so much less. But each barn has noticed that my two are drinking twice as much water as any of the other horses in the barn. Consistently. And now the barn Quest is at is asking if I ever considered Cushings for either horse, but especially Calypso, with her non-existent winter coat and those crazy spots. A quick google search shows a long list of symptoms, which neither horse has, except that pesky 'excessive water consumption and urination.' Spots aren't mentioned anywhere. Calypso DOES have one heck of a belly, and I have never seen her in heat, BUT she is an old broodmare, and vet did say that her placentitus could leave her sterile. So idk. Thought?
