Unhappy whats wrong with my horse? HELP

My horse, wendy, is salivateting severely, and she's been like this for 2 days, the saliva just keeps coming, and she is constantly drinking down her spit. I have given her a new salt block because she ate the other one up, and she is on pasture most of the day.Im worried something is wrong but I cannot figure out what. Help?

Has she been eating a lot of clover? Is there clover in her feild? I've heard a fungus that grows on clover causes horses to drool a LOT, but isnt harmful.

COuld be a number of things. My first thought is something wrong in the mouth like a sore or a bad tooth. I've seen horses salivate excessively from a serious mouth issue.
Could she be choking? Having a reaction to something?
I'd say call a vet and at least get an opinion....

thanks, that's what I thought too, wioth the clover, but there isnt much clover in the field, but Im going to keep her off the pasture a few days. And im going to call my vet for his opinion tomorrow, and I just checked her mouth for sores and didnt find anything, but I got mu shirt full of drool

Could be ulcers.... or an over load of arsenic poisoning or magnesium.

It could be anything from an allergic reaction, to a mouth injury, to ulcers...if this has gone on for 2 days, I would say it is time to schedule an appointment with the vet...

Foxtail? That will make horses drool excessively as well. Id be phoning the vet...
