Exclamation Nose Bleeds? Are they common?

Hi
My horse has had a nose bleed today. When I went out to feed both of my horses and I noticed that Reds nose is bleeding. There is a little cut on the outside of his nostril and I have no idea what is wrong or what caused it. It is no longer bleeding but I put some stuff on the cut. Anyone have any ideas?
Thankx
Haley

what kinda cut is it?
Is it possible he could have just cut his nose on the fencing or whatever.
My horse used to be so clumsy he would always have little cuts and niks all over him. I woulnt worry too much if its small

Me either. Technically since its from a cut, its a lesser deal than if it was bleeding from the inside. If it was coming out of the inside of his head, then he could have brain damage.

Then, I don't know what to tell you. If you're seriously worried, call a vet.

Honestly - if it's not from the cut and hasn't happened before it can be VERY serious and I'd have the vet out ASAP. It could simply be an ethmoid hematoma but it could also be something more serious. There was a horse at my barn that came in one afternoon with a nosebleed, he had hemorrhaged and died the next morning.

The vet will need to scope to make sure. Good luck and keep us posted.

ya. None of the horses I know have never had a problem and its not that I am worried about the cut because that can be healed and he is eating and drinking and the bleeding has stopped. Could it be stress?

Is he a thoroughbred? Did it show up after exercise?

is it dry weather out where you are? When it gets very dry here there is one horse that tends to get simple nosebleeds...

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.
