Then, yesterday I left him alone at night in his stall without a companion.
I noticed in the a.m. that he had sweat marks but I wasn't comprehending it.
Tonight, however, I did the same and left him alone. I checked on him around 8 p.m. to find that he was
sweating profusely. Beads of sweat along his neck line. At first I worried, colic. I checked vitals, temperature, and gurgle sounds in the gut. All OK. I then started thinking. It then popped into my mind he was having an anxiety attack and rightfully so. His friends were not there for the evening. I then gathered everyone up and took them to their stalls. I then went to Gator. I said, "are you OK now?" He blew out air into my hand and said "YES!"
I believe this was the problem. OH MY GOSH.
I need to be more sensitive.
