Is there such a thing as "mild" anihidrosis? Advice needed
I have a horse, who it seems, does not sweat. I have only had the horse a short time, but in that time each time he is ridden there is no sweat. Maybe a little under the bridle, and a little under the girth, just damp though, not wet.
The horse was quite unfit, and so I'd have thought that it would sweat a bit. A recent ride of 45 mins of trot work up hills still didnt get any sweat, yet the horse I was riding with, had foam between her legs (and she would be at the same fitness level).
I spoke with my vet who says he thinks the horse is just fit! I am not convinced... there are no other physical issues, the horse drinks and eats well (will even stop while out on a hack, and have a drink from a puddle if need be).
I know pretty much nothing about this condition, and according to the local vets, they have never seen it (I am in new zealand) therefore they think it is unlikely.
Is there any way I can self diagnose the horse...what other things can I look out for to determine if it is a fit horse, or a horse with anihidrosis lol
ANy advice/info appreciated ;-)
