Does your horse have difficulty in breathing or have wheazing sounds? It could be heaves or allergies. If your horse is eating hay, the dust in it can trigger them. There are shots you can get to help or try suppliments. I would have a vet check it out. One of our horses got heaves from eating moldy hay and breathed in the mold. We caught it early, but we still need to give him a shot every month in fall, winter, and spring. Summer isn't too bad because he is on pasture, so he only gets a shot then when he starts to cough.
Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse! Mares RULE! Geldings drool!
