    Unhappy Loose Stool

    Ok so my moms TB broodmare has loose stool. Yes I have called a vet!! Its not colic, she is feeling fine, happy and is not acting strange. It started yesterday, its sometimes a little looser then mash potatoes, then sometimes its a little harder then mash potatoes and has shape. I have wormed her and given her probiotics per my vet. Has anyone had this problem before or any thoughts I am not thinking of...She used to live in a sand paddock before I got her and she has been at our barn for 8 weeks. I am starting a 10-day sand blast on her tomorrow to see if that will help.

    I have been keeping an eye on her over the past 2 days and she has no fever, good looking gums, she is keeping hydrated...I am at a loss.

    She could have sand in her gut. I give my boy a 7 day purge of Sand Clear the 1st week of every month for this reason.
