There is no nasal discharge nor has there been. The mare was sick for the first 2 weeks and had a lot of discharge but, she got better on her own and we attributed it to stress as she was being hauled with 20 others, was penned overnight in a strange place, gave birth, and was then hauled a few more times until she finally made it out here. But, she has been well for 2 weeks now.
We have been trying to get a vet out to see him but, have been unsuccessful. All we have been able to get from them is that it may be upper respiratory issues (mentioned above) and another vet suggested it may be pneumonia but, since it has been so long and he was so playful until today she no longer thinks it is pneumonia. She stated that, he would be dead or better by now if it was pneumonia.
The shots we gave him were at the suggestion of a vet and were penicillin (I should have included this in my original post).
DRichmond, thank you for the link and the positivity.
