My daughter Ellie has asthma. Thankfully she's been ok round the horses so far. Two of mine are on shavings, which I get for free from a local sawmill, occasionally they can be a little dusty, I tend to keep her out of the area for a few mins, when I put new down. She helps do the hay nets, but if she starts coughing, its straight out of the barn and inhaler time.
She's been a lot worse lately, but I was wondering if that was due the pollen count, which is quite high here at the moment.
She's ok most of the time when she rides which is good, so I'm hoping she'll grow out of it eventually.
Are you ok now? Did you have to have the nebuliser(sp?) at hospital?
