Horse allergies


My husband is highly allergic to horses and I am wanting to get a horse. Is there anything I can do so that my husband does not break out into hives when he gets around me.

Have a completely separate area where all horse stuff is kept. Change before you go in the house and if you are keeping horses on your property, have the barn plenty far from the house so he isn't practically in the pasture when he walks out of the house.

And if he is very highly allergic you might need to shower after coming in from the barn so you aren't keeping all the dust and stuff on you.

Look into the Bashkir Curly. They are hypoallergenic horses. Super cool animals! Im lucky enough to own one.

Need to make sure they are purebred. Some people take advantage of that and sell part curlies as still be hypoallergenic.

Some part Curlies are still hypoallergenic. I own one of them too.

I'd say the best way to know would be to take the husband with lol. If he's fine then they are safe :)
