It's not bad but I don't want him to become worse. He is currently in a stall & is not blanketed as he is a new purchase & came with a thick coat of hair like a woolly mammoth. If I clip him now I will have to keep a blanket on him as he would be too cold in our coastal wet climate. Does anyone know of a solution to rid him of his rot? A store bought brand name or a home-made herbal solution recipe that is tried and true would be greatly appreciated? Thanks. Karen of Alsea'
