We'll be moving again in about a year - but she's had this as long as i've known her. From the day i saw her at her old home in CT with no shelter, no bedding, no grass - just hay, to our firt home whih was a dry lot with a stall with the same bedding i use now, she got hay and the feed that was way too much, then my new home which had tons of grass and a better grain diet with a stall with bedding. Each move we made she got a little better, but still isn't perfect. I'm inclined to say it isnt the bedding because she did this at her first home where she had none- but i'm willing to try and rule it out. I'll definitely be making her a belly band.
As for the salt - i did think she was pregnant when i first got her because o that and her obecity, but it's been long enough to show that's not the case. I have tried leaving her in with a good 5 pound brick and she consumed it in a week, she certainly didn't look healthy after that. So now she only gets it when she's outside. She will go over and lick it occasionally, but i believe she was eating it in her stall out of boredom when the hay ran out.
I guess i'll get an allergy est when i get the skin scraping, but can't afford euther until after xmas :( she's not miserable like she was in the summer so i'll try what you have all mentioned until the . Maybe she just needs more time for her system to work it all out
