My 7 1/2 year old mare has had bloodshot eyes since I got her 6 weeks ago. She doesn't seem bothered by it and has nothing else noticeably wrong with her, but it just seems odd. Some people have said that all horses have bloodshot eyes, others have said "no they don't" and the people at my barn don't believe that either.
So now I don't know what to believe?? Is it normal for her eyes to always be bloodshot like that? What could cause it?
BTW as a side note, she has very wide whites of her eyes...so maybe her bloodshot eyes are just more noticeable to me??
