Nicest day of the year, sick horse.
Finally we get above suck. I blow outta work early. Wife and daughter got to ride all day. Get there, and my horse isn't himself. Check him out and he's slightly swollen on one side of his nose. Between eye and muzzle. And snotty on that side. His day today, caught at noon. Put back out, caught again at 2. He was fine tied till 430. Wife noticed the snot and swelling after she rode around 4. The swelling is right under the halter. There's no heat, he eats fine, drinking. Guts sound good. He was perfectly fine with ground work. No visual signs of teeth issue. Yesterday and today have been very nice so lots of sunbathing. My first thought on the swelling was he either went face to hitching rail. Or slammed on the halter. But that doesn't really explain the snot on that side. To me anyways. Any ideas?
