Really, Flurry? I bring you to Provence for the dry climate and you develop rain rash?
To be honest, I’m not sure if it’s rain rash or just lots of clumpy mud right down at skin level. Flurry’s such a mud-hound that it’s possible he’s ground the mud in skin deep. It didn’t seem sore when I picked and poked at it, but scrubbing with the metal curry comb didn’t shift it. In the end, I resorted to washing the suspect area – all along the spine over the loins – with water and tea tree oil.
Next day I gave it a spray with Silvetrasol, which is supposed to kill all fungi and bacteria on skin as well as on hooves. He’s going to start wearing a rug from now on when there’s rain forecast, the same as Aero.
Although with all the rain we’ve been having, it’s a struggle to keep on top of their feet. Their frogs are looking pretty rough again. Sigh. Ah well, surely spring is just around the corner?
