My horse has a "cold"
I've been trail riding my mare at a state park lately. It appears she has picked up a slight cold. She has clear discharge from her nose (which catches all the dirt), and has been coughing.
I noticed on our ride last week that she had a slight cough. Now she has the clear discharge.
Her behavior is normal and she has no temperature. I was planning on taking her riding on Monday, should I keep her home? This is the same place were she "caught it" so I would assume the virus is still there.
I don't let her sniff other horses, but she is allowed grass, and does like to sniff other horse manure. Airborne virus maybe?
Or could this be allergies? I'm still thinking it is a cold, but my other (old) horse has no symptoms. Our hay has been very dusty and has gotten rained on.
