So, we went and got a big load of alfalfa hay and some Bermuda grass hay. I have been feeding the grass hay in the am and the alfalfa in the pm. We just got the hay this past Saturday so we been feeding it for 4 days now. One of my mules has broke out in hives. His head, muzzle, legs and chest are swollen and his belly is huge and he has welts (hives) all down his neck and chest and part of his shoulders. I took him off the hay all together, but does anybody know what I can do to treat the hives? Calling the vet is a last resort.
