Our little pony was coughing a bit this morning - I'm not sure why. I fed him some carrots and he coughed quite a lot after eating them. I kinda figured he might have been too greedy and eaten them too fast :roll: as per usual. But then as we were leading him down to the paddock, he coughed a couple more times... what could it be? Should we be worried? He seems perfectly fine apart from the coughing.

Is he still coughing? Did he have something to drink afterwards? He could have just taken a carrot wrong and needed to get it dislodged. If he is still coughing, maybe it's an allergy? Is it allergy season there? I would try to encourage him to drink -- put some salt in his food maybe? I don't worry about a one time cough myself -- maybe it's sorted itself out already and he's all better now?

Thanks NM. He seems fine today so I guess it was just the carrot :roll: silly pony - maybe this will teach him not to be so greedy. Lol I highly doubt it though!
