Exclamation Bloody Nose??

My 11 yr old arabian gelding had a bloody nose today. He was acting perfectly normal all day. I was going to go for a ride so I went to get my saddle and when I came back, he had a little bit of blood coming out of his nose. He was being a little hyper and throwing his head because my other horse had left him but I don't think that's the cause... I did notice that he was being flinchy when I was tacking him up but once my other horse got back, he was perfectly fine again.

He hasn't been ridden for about 3 weeks so he is not over-worked. Yesterday it was quite cold outside (about 8 degrees average) and today it warmed up to about the 20's... I don't know if that would have anything to do with it or not? It was also freezing rain...

He is perfectly healthy and has not had any problems before.

There was a horse in a yard I used to stable in that suffered from that to. Vet said he just got himself really worked up before and during a ride. Literally burst a blood vesel at the thought of it! The horse was perfectly healthy, just one of those things. Like people can get them to if there stressed, and if your saying his stable buddy was out of sight for a while that might have brought it on.. If he's riding and eating/drinking as normal I wouldnt get to worried about it at the min. Give him a few days and if it keeps up maybe give your vet a call then..
Good luck

If it wasn't a lot of blood and it stopped fairly quickly then I wouldn't worry about it he probably just worked himself up and popped a vessel or caught his nose on something. However if it continuosly bled and was quite a bit then I would ask your vet about it .

I think you should have your vet come out and look at him.
