Now he coughs sometimes, should I consult a vet or will it clear up on its own

I have a horse that does this same thing SOOOOO annoying. What I did that stopped her was got an old used tire (no rim or anything just the tire) then I got one of those flat rubber feeders and put that inside the tire. Now she can't dump it over (I also had to do the same thing for my dog that would dump his food over)
You probably should get his teeth checked if he is dropping his feed a lot he could need his teeth done. Now my 18 year old horse has good teeth but he still dribbles his food everywhere and that is just the way that he is, he has to eat out of a 40 gallon water trough so that he food does not end up all over the ground.
