Foal Loosing Hair-Answers Please?
My family and i just recently got three horses that weren't properly managed and cared for. A mare and her yearling and foal. We're trying to get them settled in before calling a vet so that's why I'm just posting at the moment. Anyway, The foal is about four weeks old at this point, and when we got him about two weeks ago he seemed perfectly healthy-nice coat and the whole deal. Just over the past couple of days he seems to be loosing hair around his nose and on the insides of his legs, and a few other small patches elsewhere. There doesn't seem to be any signs of irritation or bumps or anything. It just seems like he had a lot of itches and rubs a little too much. I tried to look up reasons for this, such as the adult coat coming in or some other explanation but could find nothing. If anyone could help me, please respond asap. Thanks. =)
