flaky skin and hair loss...?
My mom, who is my horse encyclopedia (lol), is busy nursing my step dad back to health after surgery so I have not been able to call her and ask what this could be.
Bali's skin is SUPER flaky in spots, especially where his legs join his body, and on his back. He's also losing his hair around his eyes and muzzle! :( I don't know what his deal is... I am hoping it's not some type of infection or something. He had some rain rot over the winter but has since shed *almost* all his coat and has no signs on rain rot.
I had been gone about 6 weeks from him because of health reasons, so I am really confused as to what this is.
It may be totally normal and I am just freaking out because he's my responsibility now, which makes me nervous after having my mom take care of him since he was born!!
Any help would be lovely! Thanks!!
