Does she have a temp? Any nasal discharge? Acting normal?

My pony gets this every year, though she is out on grass 24/7 + 365 days per year unless it's hurricane weather. A couple of my BOs horses get this as well. So since mine is always on grass, I can't say I've ever seen grass glands without the grass.

Interested to see if you figure it out!

well she had it the next day and its been on and off. has not been on grass in over a week and wont be for another. i am hosing off her stall to help with the dust. she is 100% normal and no temp. no discharge or anything outside of the normal. took her for a walk and she was VERY Excited for that lol!

im not worried about strangles. if SHE had it so would ALL the other horses as she has been around the same 3 horses since November. so moving her here is the first time she has been around other horses in a while.

Is there any possibility it could be something with her teeth? Maybe an abscessed lymph node? How are the insects where you are? Is there any possibility it is a bad reaction to a fly bite? I really don't know much about grass glands or that type of swelling, so I'd be interested to learn more.

Okay, basically enlarged glands, due to some allergy, with the simple laymans' term of 'grass glands' used, versus some enlarged glands due to grass feeding alone, but due more to sensitization towards some pollen, ect

Ive got a mule that has a swelling just behind the jawbone, vet said it is his thyroid, we are watching it for now and if needed it will be removed.
