    Welcome!!
    I was wodering if you'd look at a Stallion, possiblity of strangles? But no puss, snoty nose, nor cough...alone in pasture, can touch other horses....maybe an abscess? There are also 2 halter rubs...the halter will be off till he is better :]

    THANK YOU!

    Abscess?

    MLS, let's give him a warm welcome rather than try to scare him off, huh? I don't know if you intended this to sound critical, but that's how I read it.

    I definitely welcome another knowledgeable voice on the board! :) :)

    Ya, that! Vets can give advice in magazine columns etc, and even at the meetings of one of the saddle clubs I attend. I don't think that his intent will be to diagnose - but to offer a little professional advice from a sound and experienced background. Besides, vet or not, he's most likely a horse-dork like the rest of us so he'll fit right in...

    Welcome to the forum Clint! So glad to have you here! Can't wait to read some of your posts!

    Absolutely, it's all general advice as it is impossible for me to physically examine anyones horse on the forums. You may notice that as a veterinarian, I'll almost always recommend someone contacting their regular veterinarian with any concerns regarding their horse. It is my belief that everyone should have a good report with their veterinarian, to the point where you feel comfortable calling them to simply ask questions. After all, that's part of our job......
