Well, finally was able to get a sample on weekend and vets tested this morning.

Nothing in his urine to show that there is anything wrong, no infection, nothing abnormal.

He does drink a lot though so may be an electrolyte imbalance or something else or just an overflow from drinking a lot. To investigate further blood tests would need to done.

Vet has said that as he is healthy and happy I can just keep an eye on the problem and if he gets worse or seems unhappy or uncomfortable urinating then take further tests then.

I will just have to make sure he doesn’t drink a lot of water before a completion as it would be a bit embarrassing going around dressage arena with him dribbling. Lol

Cheers Tracey

Glad to hear it Tracey....maybe in this awful heat he may need some electrolites to top him up?
Hast it been stinking? We had lessons yesterday in this heat! I felt like fainting at the end....no-one knew it was going to be 38!!

My big boy is getting extra electrolytes and drinking lots. He went around his dressage test yesterday with his doodah hanging out. He doesnt like being watched having a pee and we got back to the float and the look on his face (!)thank goodness he says stretches out and goes and goes and goes. Very vocal, loads of loud grunts and groans and f**ts. Ahhh the relief.....
But I wouldn't hold back on his water.

Don't hold back on his water. He can go toilette before or after his test. A dressage test is not that long.

I had to get a urine sample from my boy not long ago and the vet and myself waited and waited.....just when we gave up he decided he needed to relieve himself.....

The vet caught the urine in her hand.....I reckon she's done that a few times before

Funniest part was trying to tip it into a container.....

I hope your boy is ok!

I was only joking about holding back his water. lol. Will look a bit funny going around arena with wee dripping down his legs as he doesn't hold it just starts leaking. Luckily he doesn't do it very often.

Feuer I rode yesterday afternoon about 4pm was way to hot, only lasted 15mins.

Windorah Farms I missed a couple of times before I got the sample. Was waiting and waiting and as soon as I went out of sight he went, ran across paddock but was too late.

I rode him first thing sat morning and knew he had to go at some stage afterwards so just hung around.

I think the best time to ride is early i the mornign which is what I had been doing...just about killed me to ride at 1.40 yesterday! Let alone my mare who hates this heat and made sure I knew it by not wanting to work!
4pm wouldve been still hot! We lasted half an hour...I had to ride her home, hung onto the front of the pommel so I didnt fall off!!
She certainly enjoyed her washdown after that...we both got a lovely shower under the hose

PS Tracey I will be watching you tests closely now with a big grin on my face!

I actually ride in the evening about 7pm. I get a good 3/4 hour ride as the sun is going down and I find it suits me much better than early when the sun is glaring. Even if it is hot I still make the effort. But I must admit it's not much fun.
Not sure why there are so many competitions this time of year. Mind you, I'm not sure why I feel compelled to go to competitions this time of year....
