Re: [RC] [RC] drooling?/Clover as a condiment? - Allegra C

Clover has never been a problem with our guys, and believe me we have allot
of white clover.  Clover will make your horse drool if it has the fungus
Rhizoctinia leguminicola in/on it.  In which case it really isn't such a big
problem, unless your not fond of spit.
Do you have any hoaryalyssum or St. Johns Wort? I've encluded a site to each
in case you are not familiar with them (pictures). They are common plants in
Michigan, but I don't know were you are located.  I hope this helps some,
and even if not I hope you find the answer to your slobber problems.

Hoaryalyssum:

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???

    jon
