Until the day he cast himself in his stall.. The vet ran the liquid coal stuff through him, and put him on probios. He was fine with in a week or so... It turned out he was fed hay that we found out can be poisonous in large quantities (wheat hay; aka: first cut of Coastal) Maybe try something like that...
There was also a mare at my barn who was ill as all get out (though you couldn't tell the owner that.) with diarrhea for a year.. The owner claimed it was only when she was in heat; which unless her heat cycle never ended, was impossible. She had numerous vets out, none could pin point it. She ended up having an ulcer..
Not saying that this is what is wrong with him, but maybe if you try the probios and it doesn't help, try having a vet check him out...
