We saw this little guy today (in passing - not for a medical call) who was drooling to the point of making pools on the floor!
He has a condition known as "Slobbers". He has recently been turned out into a new pasture containing a large amount of white clover. Both white and red clover can have the fungus Rhizoctonia thriving on it during periods of stress (drought, high humidity, overgrazing).
Although there are other conditions which can cause excessive salivation this is certainly the most common we get calls about during the summer months!

Pregnancy checks are interesting this time of year as many of the mares are nearing the end of their first trimester already, while others are just starting to breed.
Just look at how fast the pregnancy develops from a small vesicle at 14 days, to being able to see the tiny embryo at 21 days. By 28 days a small flicker can be seen in the embryo (heartbeat).
The final picture here is at 58 days. The embryo takes on the appearance of a horse, and structures can be identified such as ribs, limbs, etc.
