Last year, Gracie managed to contract Rain Scald, or Rain Rot. She wasnt rugged last year, as she never is anyway. However this year, I rugged her, there has been hardly any rain since the start of the cold weather, but it has been way below zero on a regular basis.
Today, I checked them all over as usual, and I have found several tiny patches of the Rot on Gracie. Not as bad as last year, but there non the less. The rug was brand new, un used and spotless, as was she. I just dont know what to do this time round. If any of you Brilliant horse people have any ideas???????? I would be extremely grateful!
The other two horses have no signs of any Rot, and they too had new rugs put on. All I do know is that Gracie will not be able to be ridden for some months. I really am pissed off with this. Help!!
