The Drools!!

My mare is turned out in a pasture with other mares with a ranging age group. So my question is have you ever experienced having an excessively drooling horse? I hear that it is from a fungus on clover. To my understanding mushrooms are poisonous to equines. Is there way to stop the horse from getting it? Does the drooling cause swollen glands? What clovers are poisonous to horses, I can't seem to find any pictures of the individual clover types. All the other mares that are turned out in that same field have the drool, but some not as bad as others. All of the horses seem to be drooling off and on.

Your help and experiences are greatly appreciated!!

My horse ounce had a bad drooling problem due to spear grass we found in they hay! And ounce spear grass touches the ground the seed automatically spread and it will grow! Check your pasture for spear grass!

We've had clover in pastures and yes it can and does cause foaming and slobber. But other then that it hasn't had any ill effects. They even eat it when grazing outside the pastures.

I've heard it can cause colic and such and I started getting frantic when my gelding came in one day drooling buckets.

Vet told me to take him out of that pasture so he doesn't get dehydrated but I have no where else to move him to. He's been drooling for over a month and is doing fine. I would just make sure your horse is drinking and maybe give her electrolytes in her grain or water.

Other then that, not much you can do. Not to mention they LOVE to drool all over you Or atleast, mine do.

I use to have hay pastures. Clover is outstanding for soil. But, b/c of the adverse effect it can cause I never included it in the seed mix. It can cause a number of problems.
I would also keep a close eye on them just to ensure it is not the beginnings of something like vesicular stomatitis.
