This is an email that I have sent my vet. She is out of town right now so I am awaiting her reply.
wondering if anyone here may be able to shed some light on my issue.
I have a few pics attached to show u the situation with my mare Cassie.
Last night I had noticed that she had several bites on one side (I thought it was bites from the other horses).
Tonight we saw more areas and decided to investigate further. It appears that she is literally losing her coat.
Back earlier this winter when u were in to do Splinter's teeth we noted that he had lice. The next day and 14 days later, we deliced them. Everysince they all seem to have the powder still on their skin. I may have used too much.
Wondering if the delicing powder may have caused this sudden loss of hair?
I groomed her only a week ago and was amazed that the others had alot of hair coming off them and she hadn't had a single hair coming off. Now all of a sudden she is going bald!!! Her previous owners have told me that she doesn't really lose her coat like most horses, one day its there and she loses it on her own so naturally that u don't even notice it.
If you feel along her coat it is lumpy and if you pull on an area, she goes bald.
Her diet has always been the same except a few days ago I gave her a slice of bread for the first time. Basically they are on legacy and hay.
Don't really no how to explain this and the pics are not the best. She seems fine otherwise.
Now I run into the situation of how to treat this, whatever it is and also the temps are still very cold during the nights here and sunshine during the days.
Any suggestions you may have would be deeply appreciated, as this really has me bothered.
