I've never had a sick horse before, so I have questions
The only sickness I've ever dealt with in my 7+ years with horses is colic.
When I fed this morning I noticed my yearling filly is very snotty. I can hear her breathing a good bit of the time - just like a stuffy nose. I'm calling the vet tomorrow morning but I'm just wondering what they usually do for horses with cold-like symptoms? Antibiotics?
It came on fast - she was fine yesterday. She hasn't been off of our property since the end on August, but my QH had a show last weekend... maybe he brought something home?
