Rattling Noise

Help!!! We just got a new horse last month (he's a standardbred) and he has a strange rattling noise in his throat. It's snowing now and he's just getting his winter coat. He is getting mucous in his nose and I don't know if I should still ride him. My dad says just don't ride him for a wile and it'll go away but I'm still worried. If you know how to help please do, Thanx!!!

It could be many things FarmerMorgan. One of my horses at this time of the year gets a bit of a rattle in his throat because he has mild heaves and the horses are starting to rely on hay rather pasture - this may be your guy. It's corrected by making sure he has dust free or wet down hay. On the other end of the health spectrum, this could a more acute illness requiring medications. A visit from the vet would be the best way to go. Best of luck.

If it's just the two horses on the place, they have been together all this time and (heaven forbid) it's something infectious, then both horses have been exposed to the same thing by now. Therefore, for the time being, you can probably get away with keeping them together until the vet renders an opinion or your guy starts to clear up.
