Has he been on a good, consistent, rotational worming program? My grandpa is a little old school (he is 84) and insists on only worming once a year. When my gelding was in his care, he had chronic runs. It was exaggerated when he was worked or when he got nervous, but his back legs were constantly caked with gunk. I was young, and didn't know any better. But when I got into college I took over his care and started worming him more regularly. He got better.

I don't know if it was something else causing his problem, but it seems that parasite damage would irritae the bowels, causing colitis like symptoms. Just thought I would ask...
The truth shall set you free.
