Yuck!!

I have been having a little problem with my horses lately. They have been drooling.... A LOT.... I know they get into weeds like white clover and stuff, but this has been going on for like 3 weeks, and I am starting to get worried. When they drool it isn't all the time but when they do it, it almost is as if they are vomitting it up (Not possible, I know) but that is what it looks like. Could it be from anything else? And what can I do to make it stop?

It is probably the clover which does cause drooling & spitting water but check the pasture for an noxious weeds. If it is the clover, there is not a lot you can do other than making sure that your horses have sufficient salt and minerals. I prefer free feed salt/minerals (like red cal) to blocks in order to make sure that they get what they need. Use a mineral feeder in the pasture or just tie a bucket to the fence.

I am so glad I didn't start a new thread about this. This answers my question. The BO had mentioned something briefly about white clover and drooling to me when we started turning her out in this different pasture. The day after, she was standing still in the crossties, and slightly spooked at herself when the drool hit the floor. After the initial shock, I laughed out loud. It's pretty gross. As long as it's normal and not dangerous, I'll deal with it.
