We have rattlesnakes down here. I ride in a riverbed and they just pop out of the sand. Im so scared of my horse getting bitten, especially in the nose cause that's the spot that they usually are bitten. I've heard to carry two 5" pieces of hose to put up their nostrils to keep the airway open, but if your horse was bitten, they'd probably be freaking out and rearing up so how would you be able to help them. What does a horse typically do when they are bitten? I know I've come across more than a few.
