Yep, I agree with the others...you need to get a VET OUT ASAP!!! Also...as some others have stated...check your stall cleaning, horse grooming etc. Make sure that everything is clean, groom your horse everyday! Make sure that the arena that you ride in is free of poop piles and that it is clean, and be sure to have it drug out everynow and then. Another very important thing...walk around your pasture (or the pasture that the horse is kept in a majority of the time). Make sure there is no garbage in them, no puddles of water that sit there (there is so much disease and breeding organisms in those puddles of water, that is where a majority of horses get diseases, because they drink the filthy nasty water). Which brings me to another point...clean all water buckets and water troughs as well as feed buckets. Don't use just water, put some bleach in there, and dilute it (of course) with water and wash it out really well.
-MOST IMPORTANTLY, GET A VET OUT THERE!!!-
- If today was your last day, and tomorrow was too late, could you say goodbye to yesterday?
