    Horses like every other animal have tear ducts and when these ducts get dirt or something in them they'll clean themselves out. The goop is just a result of the horses eyes trying to keep them clean. I wouldn't worry about it. =)

    My mare recently had the runny eyes, so I had the vet out and her tear duct was blocked. The vet flushed it out...your horse might have the same problem.....

    Mine all take turns having some eye goop in winter due to hay feeder/dust-dirt, I believe. As long as there isn't signs of tenderness or pain it isn't an alarm bell. Squinting or excessive runny eyes would be tho.

    He isn't squinting or anything, but it is still goopy. I am going to try to wipe it off today. It is still a little chilly out though so I don't know if I want his fur wet.
