My 27 year old gelding has started getting bald spots this past weekend. Never had them before.
Could it be from the 80 degree weather suddenly and him just starting to loose winter coat?
I have never seen this before.
Yes 3 other horses but he is only one like that, rash lookin on some spots, not getting picked on I am 100% sure.
Not really actin itchy and no mood change. Hard to say about lack luster as his winter coat has always been kinda dull like all his life.
Even getting them on belly and face Posted via Mobile Device
Looks like lice. Get him on a good level of Vitamin A. It gets rid of lice, rain rot, runny goopy eyes and other skin and health problems encountered in the winter and early spring after horses have run out of stored Vitamin A. Do a search on it and it will tell you how to fix it. Green grass will also fix it.
Don't think lice, the same brush was used on another horse Saturday right after used on him and she is just fine, and those 2 are constantly touching and if it was lice she would have it too. Posted via Mobile Device
Please read Cherie's post. If the other horse has proper levels of Vitamin A she will not get the lice. You need to supplement this horse with vitamin A. Do a search on this forum you will get lots of threads on what to use and how.
