​Slobber syndrome ("slobbers"), or slaframine toxicosis, is a chemical irritation and mycotoxicosis resulting from the consumption of Rhizoctonia species-infected legumes, in which excessive salivation is the characteristic sign. However, it is important to note that "Sobbers" may also appear in horses from mechanical irritation, which may be caused by other plants with spines, burrs, or sharp awns on the seeds. Please see the attached timely information sheet covering this topic in more depth - Slobbers Timely Info 3.pdf
