In this excerpt from the June 2019 episode of Ask the Vet (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcnT3CfualY), Dr. Gray and SmartPaker Dan answer a question from a horse owner wondering whether she is “babying” her horse too much in the hot and humid Florida weather. They discuss ways to cool off your horse, as well as one specific method you should NEVER use to cool down your horse.
