At a loss: mare has intermittent diarrhea
I'm just not sure what's causing it. Her poop is normal for awhile, then maybe a little wetter for 1-2 poops, then she may have a tiny bit of pure liquid after a ride.
It initially started a couple months ago. We did sand clear (sand test was not obvious and even xray not abnormal) and that aggravated it temporarily. Her fecal was negative and we wormed her.
She looks great, gorgeous, in good weight. She acts great - perky.
I do know she's a worrier and she internalizes. Take her on trails and she really gets diarrhea!!
She also eats anything... She loves eating leaves in turnout. I think we have the poisonous maple leaves, some pine, not sure what else. I'll get the leaves cleaned up.
Sometimes she has dirt in her nostrils, as if she's out there chewing on dirt!! The soil doesn't seem super sandy.
(She leaves the hay and pokes around in the leaves!)
I'll call the vet again. Wanted to put this out there in case folks have any advice.
