I’m not really sure what is going on with Brá. I have noticed, recently, that she has lost her fur and there maybe some insect bites. She is not looking her best really.
Treatment: A topical ectoparasiticide containing deltamethrin 1% w/v plus a daily anti-itch supplement, TurmerAid (turmeric) and equine minerals and vitamin powder. She had sweetitch this autumn but didn’t suffer like Hetja did and maybe this is the result. I don’t know. She has no other symptoms.
This side is the worst.
And this side is not nearly as bad.
I do know Brá, and her friends, regularly hang over the fence so it might just be hair-loss from stretching over wire.
She is absolutely fine in herself, if anything nicer and easier to work with. She has a fine figure now and I wouldn’t want her to be any thinner.
Her field-mates show absolutely no sign of anything similar.
I am trying my best to not ignore the situation. If Brá was itching and miserable, obviously I would move her, but apart from looking revolting, she is absolutely fine. Possibly looking the best she has in ages.
Anyway, she is enjoying her daily mini-bucket feed of fibre, herbs, powder. She appreciates this individual attention and care. I hope it all clears up.
