Don’t Sweat the Little Stuff

One of the symptoms of EPM, is odd sweat patterns, and unusual times of sweating.  In the pictures below, Fudge is sweating only on the left side, in the areas circled.  It was about 72° that afternoon, and not terribly humid.  The other two horses were warm in the remnants of their winter coats, but neither was sweating.  EPM may also effect part of the brain that controls body temperature.  EPM’ers often suffer stress and temporary neurological symptoms when the weather turns hot.
