Post subject:  Non-Sweater

One of my 2YOs in early training in Ocala has developed into a non-sweater. It's been an exceptionally warm summer there. I'm wondering what my practical options are.

Should I just wait for cooler weather or consider moving the horse to a more temperate climate.

Is the condition likely to manifest itself in warmer weather for the rest of his racing life?

Thanks for all help in understanding the situation.

My OTTB gelding was a non-sweater a couple years back. Think the Missouri heat and humidity brought it on. Gave him the supplement One AC that summer, kept him under fans most days, and hosed him off when I could (darn work gets in the way). He started to sweat a bit after a couple months, and now sweats normally. He was only on One AC for that summer.

I'd definately start on One AC. Hopefully your horse will get over this condition, too.
