Lacey's nose has been kind of snotty lately, mostly her left nostril. And I know that yellow snot is bad in humans, but is it bad with horses?
It's clear and yellow, and not very thick but it is getting her nose kind of crusty... I'm going to try to get the crusties off tomorrow (she was really worked up about life today so I couldn't just run into my house to grab one and leave her tied outside briefly) with a warm wet towel...
She's acting fine so I'm not too worried about her... I'm unable to take her temperature because I don't have a thermometer, but I'm realizing that that's something I probably should get soon since I've been realizing more need for one than I had originally thought. Haha
It has been kinda cold (high forties during the day, low forties at night), really windy for here (like you go outside and within ten minutes your hands hurt from wind chill), and it's been rainy (that kind of nasty driving rain that bites at you), so I suppose that it's possible that the change in weather could be messing with her snot factory... Haha She's also blanketed, currently with her heavy blanket since she seemed cold with her midweight on (it was basically cold under her blanket).
Does yellow clear snot warrant a vet call? Or is she most likely fine?
Also, what kind of snot is "bad snot?"
