This is the first time I've heard this. What are the long term tetra

They are products that are marketed for cattle and other ruminants, primarily--brand names such as LA-200, etc.  Can be REALLY deadly if given to a horse with a low tolerance for tetracycline.

This horse is a 25 year old So. Cal. baby. Never been exposed to such   
things. Might her reaction be violent because she has no previous exposure?    >>

While I can't give you an answer to that, the premise certainly makes sense.
