Hi everyone. I am stretching it a bit here, but feel this topic is important.

I was tending to my seven month pregnant mare the other day and noticed she didn't look like she felt well. Then I saw her drooling a lot. When I checked her lips, she had a lot of frothy saliva on them.

Of course it scared me. What could my pregnant mare have and could it be treated, while pregnant?

Then I remembered that someone at the same place where she is boarded had a problem with fox tails in their horse's mouth. So I swept her mouth all over and about turned the lips in side out.

I found one foxtail, but I think the real problem was the long, hard stem that had somehow gotten stuck under her tongue and she couldn't get out.

So it behooves all of us to pay attention to the mouth. This was not only painful for her, but being able to get it out saved me a vet bill, which is always good.

And the foxtail problem is being addressed, so hopefully it won't happen to me again. Just thought I'd pass it on.

Thanks Cjskip, I never thought of foxtails being a problem. Good thing you did!
