    Just brought Bailey home from the boarders 3 weeks ago. Bailey developed this rash on her nose while she was boarded and now it has spread in crevasses, back, legs eyes etc. We have bathed, treated her repeatedly. Any one have any opinions on what this could be? We did have a biopsy today at...

    Myself as well as all the local vets and every horse person I know is stumped with this one. I have a 21 year old Morgan horse (not a lippitt) gelding that I have had for 5 years now. When we first got him he was in great health, had no problem keeping on weight, and was always healthy. About 3...

    In other years, my ponies generally don't change much for summer except moulting. However, this year, all of them have lost huge quantities of hair very suddenly and it has left enormous bald patches on them. They are quite itchy but one of them has a bald patch on her underbelly so I ruled out...

    A camp horse that I have just recently started free leasing is suffering from hair loss on his face and a spot on his leg. I worked with him all summer at camp and we took really good care of the spots, with moisturizers and sun lotion but we just couldn't get it to grow in. The skin looks...

She got ridden a lot that weekend, but no more than normal trips we take her on; in fact, we've taken her on week-long vacations where she gets...

    So my horse (Arab) started to lose hair at the base of both ears near the poll. The spots were symmetrical. I asked mom and she just figured he was shedding. I didn't agree. So i kept an eye on it... got worse but not severe. There was then a new set of spots on both sides of the shoulder/neck...

    My thoroughbred has patchy, dime sized bald patches on his romp. Vet said it wasnt a fungus like ringworm, or rain rot or any form of obvious dermatitis. They are clean with no bumps, dandruff or scabs. I treated it with a fungicide but not helping. Some patches are experiencing new hair growth...

    Ok, not really, but his mane is pathetic and thin. When I run my fingers through it I end up pulling hairs out, and if I grab mane over a jump I pull out a handful of hair. I find that it grows slower than any other horse at the barn, and it sticks straight up, especially at my release point...
