Is it maybe because the UK is so much wetter?
In about a 6 weeks time my horses will come in from the field sweating by mid day and get hosed over then stand in the barn with the fans on until it cools down in the evening when they go back out so dust is no longer a problem!!!
I think it may have to do with moisture. My horses got it when I lived in the Willamette Valley, where it rained 9 months out of the year. Here in the High Desert I have seen very little, and we only get about 9 inches of rain (and rain equivalent) per year.
