White eye pus

Today my brother went down to the barn to feed the horses this morning and saw my horse had this white pus in they corner of his eyes. Not sure if this is a serious or minor. Going to keep an eye on it. Has anyone encountered this before?

Keep an eye of it but it is most likely allergies.

We just went through that with our horses. One was worse than the other, but it's probably allergies, or could be conjunctivitis (?). Either way, clean it with saline solution, keep a close eye on it, and if it gets much worse don't hesitate to call the vet.

Thank you. I believe it's just allergies or from flies because I brought him in today and his eyes were watery/runny.

If it is just this ONE time and only a small amount, I wouldn't worry about it.

But certainly, if it gets any worse, then call your vet ASAP. If it gets worse, it could be conjunctivitis (viral, bacterial, allergic, or fungal). You'lll need the appropriate drops to treat it.
