I came out to check on my mare tonight and in less than 24 hours he eyes are so puffy and swollen. There is no drainage or puss, and her eyes are not goopy at all. They are tender for me to touch.
She wears a fly mask right now that I keep loose and comfortable on her, as well and keeping it cleaned. She hasn't ever had any issues like this before. When I came out there, she had managed to get her fly mask off. I'm not sure when in the day this happened, and I don't know if her eyes were swollen before, and she got it off because of the irritation; or if she got it off and then the irritation happened after. Is this even an irritation at all?
I've attached some pictures. Don't mind the dust on her face, I just turned her out and she rolled. I rinsed her face off to keep the dirt off her face, dried her off then put her away. Any thoughts?
