White nasal discharge?

Hi, I have had my horse for 3 or 4 years now and she is a VERY easy keeper, but just this morning she had like a pure white nasal discharge, but no cough. It went away within half an hour. Should I be worried or should I do anything?

Did it appear after a work out?

Not normally an issue - if it was yellow you probably have an issue, white usually means something like allergies, dust in the nose, etc.

I was thinking allergies too.

Nah don't worry unless it gets really gloopy and yellowish. Alli gets it sometimes but I just clean it out with a *clean* spounge and it doesn't usually come back too often.

If it starts looking like human boggies like we get when we have colds, she may have something up ;)

White discharge (almost like whipped cream) is typically caused by some irritation up in the nose and usually goes away by itself. Just keep an eye on it, but if your horse stops eating, drinking, or becomes lethargic, call the vet right away.
