Hello there. Sounds like Molly has a sinus infection, likely from a tooth root abscess. Even though you do her teeth regularly, geriatric equids can develop tooth root issues easily. I would recommend making an appointment with your veterinarian to perform an oral exam using a full mouth speculum. If they do not see anything abnormal externally, I would recommend that they take xrays to examine the tooth roots and to see which one(s) are causing the issue with the sinus. Molly will also need to go on antibiotics to help clear the infection, and occasionally the sinus may need be flushed by the veterinarian as well. Please let me know if you have any further questions!
