Horses don't have a gag reflux = no throw up capability.

That said - - was your horse eating when he started to spit up water? If so, could be a choke - - if it lasts for more than 1 hour, you might have the vet out to tube/give muscle relaxers (not banamine, though...can't remember name)

If your horse was not eating, the "water" may be drool from a variety of different plants that/ are toxic/bad for horses. What is your horse's environment like?

Also, does he have a temperature?

They are on dallas, bermuda, and a lot of clover. No temp. This has been going on for 2-weeks. I have been told that the clover will make them do this.

Clover will make them salvate.

Nothing really to worry about, just try to avoid the wet/messy kisses :)
