Orange egg yolky mucus
3 days ago I found my horse with organge mucus coming out of her left nostril and it looked exactly like egg yolk. Her behavior was fine, she does not have a temperature. I rode her and she was really good too. 2 days ago she still had it and it was coming out of her left nostril a lot and out of her right one a small amount. She seemed fine that day as well. Yesterday i got her out and she still had the orange mucus as well as brown, white, and clear. I rode her and she was very hot, flightier than normal, and spooky. When i got of she had a white frothy liquid coming out of her nose.

She got her teeth floated about a week and a half ago and hasnt been eating as much since then, so i am not sure if it is another symptom to add or just because of her teeth. We also gave a 5 way shot about a week ago as well and her nose is the worst on the side we gave the shot to. She also has a slight swelling about 4 inches up from the side of her mouth by her teeth on the left side. She has the same bump on the right side but the left side is much bigger. Im not sure if this is a symptom or maybe swelling for her teeth floating?

Any help with this is appreciated! thanks:)

Almost sounds like an infection or allergies from the shots. I would call a vet and just ask if they think they should come out an look.

You need to be on the phone with your vet....yesterday. Anytime a horse is off their feed for more than 1 day, that usually indicates that something is very wrong.

Thick discharge like that can be a sign of a sinus infection. She should have been seen by a vet when you first noticed it.

Call your vet. After having her five way shot, she has developed an unusual sinus discharge, she is not herself when being ridden, and is not eating as normal. She may be having a reaction from one of the shots.
I would be very concerned.
