    Blood dripping from nose? What's wrong?

    Well yesterday morning I go and feed Trix and Dude and Trix's nose is dripping blood I have no clue why it was. So I clean it all out and when I go back around 2:00 in the afternoon to feed and see her again that same day it's still dripping blood. And again this morning I go to feed her and its still dripping. And then this afternoon its still dripping too. What could be wrong???

    I would get a small flashlight and take a looksee up her nose - if you wipe the blood away and can't see a little cut or nick inside her nose then its time to call the vet.

    I agree, I'd check for any obvious reason for it to be bleeding, but it doesn't sound like a cut/abrassion if it's been bleeding that long and hasn't coagulated on its own. -- Best to call your vet incase there's any trauma that's caused this ailment.
    People say riding isn't a sport...Well you see, the 'ball' I play with has a mind of its own.

    I've been Goosed..and I LIKED it!

    thanks for the replies ;-)

    I was going to look up her nose with a flashlight but I couldnt find one at the barn so I'll make sure to bring one tommorow.

    Stick a light up there. If you don't see anything, call the vet ASAP. Something big could be wrong in there.

    yeah I would be pretty worried. everyone else is right.. look with a flashlight and call the vet...

    does Trix seem to be in pain.. if/when you touch her nose?
    is she shaking her head? ect... check vitals and all the good stuff to
    just down to one horse now... and by the fall.. no horses I think I will live though.

    I think everyone has gave you some good ideas so there isnt anything I could add to it. But I hope she is ok.
