Thumbs down Bloody Nose?

My mini filly has had one nostril discharging quite a bit of dirt and mucus for the past week or so. We have been cleaning it out regularly, thinking maybe she just had a drainage issue that is resolving itself or that she hit it or something, but today I noticed she has some dry blood mixed in. It has been very dry lately and she has been in the pasture quite a bit, but neither she nor any of my other horses have ever had this problem. She turns a year old this week. I will probably be calling the vet out today or at least tomorrow to check it out, but does anyone have any ideas/suggestions?

My gelding gets a bloody nose sometimes. Vet said most likely dry up in there . But since yours has had that other stuff it kinda seems like infection o.o

I'd probably get her guttural pouch scoped. They can get an infection in there that causes snotty issues.

I agree with cakemom, it is time to call in the vet. Draining mucus from one side for over a week and now blood is suspicious of infection. It could be strangles, guttural pouch mycosis, an ethmoid hematoma, or just plugged up nasolacrimal ducts. Point being, you don't know which until she's checked out and it's not looking like it will get better on its own at this point.
