Roadyy, love the pics of the ducks & geese, wow!
Nicker, I don't have the info at my mental fingertips but Vit A (?) is supposed to be something that is really good for skin issues and is easily fixed with an injection or supplements. I also think Omega 3s are good for skin and immune system disorders. On the question of a TWH who may have heaves, I would not go there without doing a lot of research and having a vet's report. It for sure may require special handling (dust-free hay, not being stalled, and meds). Plus, you might never be able to use the horse to the fullest.

NickerMaker - I hope Rainn gets feeling better soon. Poor thing must be miserable with itching so much. Also good luck with your new leads on horses.

The barn is finally coming along. There is one end left to sheet in, the doors to hang and some corner trim to out on. Once this is done the crew should be finished with the outside. Hopefully they will be done tomorrow.

Here's a picture from this evening.

Laidytrails.....I'm there with ya on the heaves....I just did a VERY quick google search, and heaves isn't a 'little' thing.....like I need MORE drama in my horse world....first a sassy-pants, now skin issues (which I don't mind ) and heaves on top of that? Ugh! Why do people try to pawn their problems on me?. I must be sucker! Lol. I'm being VERY cautious, oh so very cautious!

Thank goodness for you guys! Thanks for the input! TGIF!!!!!!

NickerMaker71, I assume you have tried giving her a betadine bath to help cure the skin irritation so I will suggest Selson Blue. It is a great dandruff shampoo and has really helped with both of our mare's itchy skin. It wasn't rain rot or lice or anything like that, it was just a case of the itches after shedding. I've not seen them rubbing on posts or trees in over a week now since using the Selson Blue.


Koolio, I can't see the pics on this pc due to our company web filter blocking whatever program you use to store them. I'll have to bring it up on my phone later. From what I saw the last time I looked I really like your exterior design. Those windows up high should really allow a lot of light in and save some energy.

Sereno, those are all my horses except the last paint. She was one of the rescues we recently found homes for as she was only here a little over a week with the mini.

Some were pics of them when I first got them and some were more recent. Different stages of back build and withers for Ms. Linda to compare to explain what she was referring to.

No updates on the horse trailer as I had a few other projects to tackle and a couple of sets of company pop over. Although the young man from church has decided to try his hand at selling horse manure since I told him about gardeners getting it for their vegetable and flower beds. He filled 5 feed bags last night and is trying to come up with a snazzy sales pitch to get customers attention.

My neighbor across the way has decided to get his lifted mud truck back going and asked me to help him get his front end corrected because of the tall leaf springs and larger tires leaves him with very little turning radius. He wants to try and have it done in 2 months so he can take it to Perry,Fl for the huge mud bog events that draw in thousands of people. I will have to work every evening for a month to get it fixed in time, if he can get all the stuff in time that I'll need to do it.

Roadyy, not I haven't tried either of your tricks. I am writing down the various things that people tell me to mention to the vet, and then see her recommendation. I know the previous owner had her on a antihystimine (sp), but that didn't cure her. Not sure how often they bathed her either...they had a ton of horses, and I suspect not a ton of time to dedicate to each one, as I can now. (Don't get me wrong, they are SUPER people, but I can take it step further easier with only one horse. :)

I hear ya NM71. Ladytrails is also correct on the vitamin A supplement for any and all skin health. Most people will get the injection version, but squirt it over the feed or directly in the mouth like a wormer instead skin injection.

When is the vet scheduled to evaluate her?
