Hes never seen a stallion like Feder, though, and when the two of them meet up his well-ordered life goes right out the window. Feder has always been able to transform from horse to man, but hes never really had the urge to spend any time as a human until now.

To see a man about a dog or horse is an English idiom, usually used as a way to apologize for one's imminent departure or absence—generally to euphemistically conceal one's true purpose, such as going to use the toilet or going to buy a drink. The original non-facetious meaning was probably to place or settle a bet on a racing dog.
