    When Beau had his severe choke, he has foam around his mouth, stuff coming out his nose and a dangerously rapid respiration rate. It had occured sometime after we left him for the night until we came to the barn the next day around 1 pm.

    For his mild chokes he will stretch his neck or toss his head about or go off his feed until the object passes....which is anywhere from a few minutes to fifteen....

    When he chokes, whether it's mild or severe, he usually has his head up high and moves his neck/head about alot....
