    There's a gelding (about 13-yrs-old) that has a clear orange discharge from his nose. I was wondering what might be causing this and if I should try to contact the owner to have the vet see him when he comes out next week (the owner is one of those once-a-month visitors). He's had it for several weeks now.

    A possibility the horse may have some blood mixed?
    I would call the owner and have the horse looked at.

    The horse may have sinusitis sp?

    I was worried about this too with my mare. turns out, it is just from our grain; it is sweet feed, and it has a reddish orange hue to it. So especially after she is grained, she has an orangish tint to her muzzle!
