Kazooks!! Balding Horses!!!!

Ok well I havent seen Dana or Delta since Monday and I went yesterday and Deltas shedding (old news) and it had got matted but I procrastinted and Delta can be really unpredictable sometimes.

But yesterday I went and she had these massive, sweaty bald spots on her witheres around her rump (not on it) and its like

Have they been rugged? Could be rain scald

Rain scald can appear as large crusty scabs, or small matted tufts of hair. There is usually a lot of tiny scabs that have embedded hair and can be easily scraped off. Underneath the scabs, the skin is usually pink with puss when the scabs are first removed, then it becomes grey and dry as it heals. It can be difficult to differentiate rain scald from other similar skin conditions. If in doubt, call your vet.

This was on http://www.ranvet.com.au/what_is_rain_scald.htm and no Deltas not rugged but theres no puss, scabs or that kind of thing..........

Hmm one slight problem there I don't own her and her owner's an idiot. He'll use the fact that se dosnt seem to be in any pain and say theres no need..........

An allegic reaction to something maybe? Has her food been changed suddenly? Is there any reason for her to be 'stressed' out? It may be rain scaled, the minior signs of it.

Um well the only change in her diet is the fact they have gone from chaff, pellets and virtually no grass (Whats all this gree stuff growing suddenly??) to a diet of almost completely grass with one meal a day of chaff but it hast affected Dana that way. Dana has been a bit touche around the gut but that could be also Delta constanly lashing out at her............

Seems was over-reacting just a tad. After her winter coat fell out a GORGEOUS shiny, copper chestnut coat grew back out and its just that its thin, being TB and when it first fell out she was sweaty and I couldnt see the new hair!!!

Trust me to panic!! :roll: :roll: :roll:

Thanks for your help anyway!!
