strange happenings...

today when I walked up to my horse to give her, her wormer I noticed a bit of blood in her nostril. Now this isn't the first time that's happened since we've had her so I thought "hey no big deal". I get her out and I ride around some and she coughs a bit, that's not really that BIG of a deal as we just went for a run but she does do that on occasion as some horses do. When we are getting ready to feed and she comes up to me for some petting I pet under her jaw and I notice a little golf ball sized lump. And it was hard like a golf ball too. It's under her jaw where it's usually quishy, the odd part is maybe it's related to the bloody nose? As it was on the same side that the nostril bled on. Definitely probably going to have to call out a vet to be sure. But any suggestions? Anything I can do until then? Such as penicillin(sp?) shot?

My first thought is strangles with the lump. It isn't uncommon for a horse to have discharge from their nose (though it is rarely bloody) with strangles. Definitely would have a vet check it out.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

that's what I thought first was strangles. But wouldn't it be soft and not so hard? Considering they drain and all?

Not necessarily. They sometimes go through a stage when the knots are very hard.

And it could be a lymph node, blood can be from guttural pouch. Def call the vet out.

will do. However I don't think many of our vets out here are fully qualified to actually be a vet lol but i'll talk to my parents about calling one out.
