Hives, Hair loss and one Rotten Horse

Oh Bella, what a diva you are. I don’t know why I would ever expect anything less. After all, I do wear pearls to the barn and meet the farrier in heels from time to time. So, why  own a horse that would be anything less than a princess? Snake is in his own Diva category. He refuses to share a his trailer. Forcing all other equines to scramble for a ride. How horrible he have to stand in ONE stall in the trailer and not have the full space.

Poor Bella Bay has sensitive skin. She is such a lady after all. She had a wonderful case of hives that caused her to itch all over and lose her pretty hair. She looks like she has mange. (You don’t Bella, don’t you let those other horses pick on you.) The resulting therapy was an emergency vet call, meds administered IV, daily allergy medications and my personal favorite, baths at least every few days. Bella Bay is a green, unbroke 4 year old. I know she doesn’t want to stand in the was stall for an hour being pampered. But she has so far with little fighting. She’s lucky she’s a lovely sweet girl.
