The horse I have been waiting MONTHS for finally arrived today after 3 days of pretty intense travel poor guy. Surprisingly he wasn't in too bad of a condition, he was stressed but he quickly calmed down once he was settled in, fed and watered
The thing I am worried about is that he is absolutely riddled with insect bites. Especially his back legs, They feel like the have the texture of bubblewrap. Quite a few of them have broken open. At his old residence he was rarely bitten, never like this. Why has the travel suddenly caused him to erupt like this? Of course in the morning ill be running off to grab him some sort of spray, but Im really worried about irritating his wounds further. Is there a product specifically designed to keep flies off wounds? Or am I better off mixing my own? What would be the best mixture to use in his case?
Thanks for any help in advance, much appreciated Photos coming soon!
