A question about fly blankets
I've never delt with such a hairy horse before and am trying to keep her safe from sunburn as I've noticed redding down the part of her double mane which ive tried braiding and parting only to one side but it has been to no avail. So to the point, Id like to buy her a flyblanket to protect her from the sun and flies but I'm afraid I'm going to overheat her since it's been approximately 100f for weeks. Any input or experience would be appreciated! Thanks.
You're sure it's sunburn?
My horse is experiencing something very similar except it's all along his back. This hasn't happened before to him so I'm getting an entire blood panel done to see if something is awry. Might be a good idea for you to investigate that option..
As for the sheet, won't make your horse hot as long as it's designed for flies. Just measure her properly and you should be a ok!
I'm sure it's sunburn... It's only on her mane skin at the peak of her crest and it wasn't there a day and a half ago. She's got pink skin all along her top line -shrugs- and I live in Colorado which (idk if your from the states or not) is one of the top states for skin cancer because of the elevation causing more intense uv rays. Ihope your horses skin issues clear up do you have any idea what it is or could be?
Thanks for the speedy reply! I plan on buying her blanket soon :-)
Well this is simple to fix: put suncreen on her. Yup.............
No clue, it could be an imbalance.. allergic reaction, not sure. But thanks :)
