11 September 2007

I am just doing a quick post now with a link to an article which sounds as if it is describing exactly what my horses are experiencing in the field.


I have hunted through the field for something that may be causing it but I can see no clover, St Johns Wort or Field Bindweed which they say are the main causes. I have got two plants which I have photographed and am going to edit and post in the hope that someone may know what they are. Very strange but it looks as if I am going to have to bring at least Wiggle home, she is having a lot of discomfort, poor girl.

I will do my regular post later.

Hi Lori,

Thanks for the kind comments on my blog. I had N look do some additional work in photoshop and we sent them off to the printer.

Thanks for the interesting article also on the allergic reaction to clover.

Can't wait to see pictures of your new fence. It sounds like it will be beautiful.

good luck in the search for the solution, lori. I hope poor Wiggle feels better soon!

I just found your blog. Your photos are stunning.

I live here in the blazing hot sunny drought-scorched South, and horses with pink skin get sunburned just like people do. Your search for the plant may not be fruitful. Perhaps you have had more sunny days than usual, or your mares have less shade. Fall is coming! Hang in there.

You are having the same hay problems we are. It is terrible we are facing our third winter knowing there will be a hay shortage. At the end of last year I was paying $12/bale for hay. I've stored as much as we can fit in anticipation of winter -- it's $5.50-6.00/bale right now. Wish I could store more.

If you saw my fences, which I won't show you, you'd be really glad about the one you're putting in. Nice to meet you!

Good luck in your search for the culprit. I hope the horses don't get it too bad!

Hmm - bummer about the sunburns. Hopefully they'll get over it quickly!
