A couple of photos of Stella and not at her best. You can see the skin on her neck that is what resulted within 5 days of the tick collar being used. I do not know how quick the reaction was as I did not see her for a few days but was shocked at the skin and removed the collar. Her muzzle is also a little bare of hair. In her winter coat so that adds to the shagy look. But then again I have always described Stella as a tart. No insult intended, in my younger days I also had an interest, perhaps that is why Stella appealed to me A tart in New Zealand is not a women of the night, but can be mistaken for a sweet pie one has with custard and ice cream. But, is better known for its a defiant look, with a hint of fun and adventure and the chase what more can in say, boy did we enjoy the chase. Easily distracted I am, back to Stella.
New treatment started today I'm washing her with a soap impregnated with neem oil designd for animals and horses. I think this could take a while but as long as it does not worsen then I'm on the right track. Tomorrow I am also buying a product designed to remove unwanted toxins from her gut. At great cost I might add.
I surpose I could always shoot her and buy a new horse. I have just brought a new shotgun that needs a tryout, a single ball shot will do the trick. What do you think, suggestions always greatfully recieved.
