orange nasal discharge???
When I went to the barn to visit my mares today, one of them had this orange nasal discharge. She seems fine other than that. Eating well, drinking normally, she nickered to me when she saw her supper. I will be putting a call into the vet tomorrow since she did sound congested when I hand walked her. I'm not sure if she was congested or just hot from the 80 degree weather and her huge winter coat- but I think it was congestion.
I cleaned up her nose as best I could- it was full of dirt. Then I stood out and brushed her for awhile. Her nose was still dripping a little bit. I cleaned it again and it was kind a clear- orange tinged color. Not a dark orange, kind of a orange tinted peach color? It also seems to be dripping mostly from one nostril. The other nostril had some dirt in it, but wasn't dripping at all.
What do you think? Sinus infection?
