Coughing while rolling and riding
Long story short....
I let my horse out into the ring earlier this morning to roll. Took the halter off and he ran off, rolled and he was coughing like he was hacking something up but, I didn't think anything of it because our ring is a sand ring thought maybe he swallowed some sand or something.
Fast forward to riding him. Got on him bareback and set up a couple of jumps to pop him over. Jumped him over the first jump (cross rail) and he lands the jump nicely but starts coughing right afterwards. He was racing the jumps so, I decided to put my saddle on him and he was still coughing.
Stopped jumping him for the day and I got off of him and hand walked him around the ring and he was still coughing, it wasn't bad though just enough to make me wonder what was going on. He also tripped over himself once or twice.
I have the vet coming this week to give him his shots for spring time but, until than anyone else have any idea?
He coliced before so, I am wondering if it could be him collicing again. He's eating, pooping normally (although it is a little runny) drinking enough water, no rolling.
