I am having a problem with the horses down the road, there appears to be clover in their field although I have never seen it, because Wiggle has turned pink, the skin under the white hair is pink and susceptible to sunburn but this has only been in the past week or so that I have noticed it and tonight when I got there she was looking dreadful, scabby and pink, thin hair in the white areas. Apparantly there is a particular type of clover that makes the horses with pink skin more sensitive to the sun and this is what is happening with her. I am going to have to try to load her up tomorrow and bring her home. Cat and BB are showing signs too although they are nowhere as bad as Wiggle. I am going to have to try to take some of the brown horses over in place of them for the last month or two that I will be using this field. I would hate to have to bring them all home now when the grass is starting to grow. With the hay situation I was hoping to be able to take advantage of it until at least the end of November. I have a picture of her but she looks too dreadful so I am not going to post it. I am amazed at how quickly this has developed. They say that the clover is prevalent when it is damp which makes sense because of the rain we have had over the last two weeks. Before that it was so dry and this is obviously why we are seeing it now.
I am heading for some sleep, i got some of the fence built today with Larry supervising but it was very hot and I am exhausted tonight and sunburned. I will take a picture of it as soon as I have finished the one side so you can all see my handiwork LOL.
Thanks everyone for your visits (((((Hugs))))))
