Re: [RC] [RC] drooling?/Clover as a condiment? - Laurie Durgin

I have about 20% clover and it is spreading, but mine only get to eat that paddock when it has grass. I hadn't ever noticed drooling. Is white clover bad as a 'nibbling condiment"?

St. John's Wort will make them drool quite badly, along with hoaryalyssum. Clover usually doesn't alone, but a mold that gets on red clover might.

My bet is that its the clover. My two guys are drooling up a storm! Its just disgusting. They drool on the handles of my wheelbarrow when I'm cleaning the stall and if I'm not careful, they drool on me to.

My gelding has started some rather copious drooling the past week. Thought of lots of ideas like clover or possibly a tooth issue & vet will come take a look thursday. hes not shy at the bit & doesn't show any obvious pain. no smell like an infection or swelling that I can see/feel. thin liquidy drool. doesn't toss his head or avoid bit & no other behavior issues, save being a mix of saddlebred & arab (LOL!). he doesn't show any loss of appetite or unwillngness to work either. drooly whether working with a bit or an s-hack. eats ravenously when riding and drinks fine.

its been quite wet and our fields have grown alot keeping me on the mower more than last year. grass has been pretty green and lush all summer. yes we have clover (white) on the bottom pasture, but none on the upper hill & they generally spend 1/2 day on each. our hay (when they get it) right now is first cutting grass/timothy/alfalfa but is much more mature & stemy than usual with the rainy weather.

no changes in feed or supplemets. any other suggestions???
