Ah sorry howhighcanyoujump I literally only just saw this…
I’m taking Benedryl anyway for allergies (fat lot of use it’s doing though tbh) and it’s making zero difference to the skin thing. But thanks anyway fo the suggestion :)
I wonder whether it might be worth switching to different allergy medication? I don’t even know. I’ve only ever used over the counter stuff from my pharmacist, but I think I’m going to have to bring it up next time I have a GP appointment. This whole thing is driving me insane right now.

I feel your pain horseingaboutt I think I’m allergic to my own sweat so I get really bad excema especially in the summer. I used to do baking soda baths, Epsom salt baths, and I’ve heard oatmeal baths work as well. 

Everyone always told me I needed to figure out the root cause, but I never could pin point it. Finally my doctor have me the steroid cream that I use ULTRA sparingly whenever I get a spot that is starting to get bad. And that’s helped over the last year or so. I can live pretty normally now.

Omg this is adorable

I can honestly say this is the first time I have ever seen cross ties clipped on those specific halter rings. I’ve only ever seen them clipped on the noseband rings, or the ring under the chin. (Not criticizing, just pointing that out).

He’s just too short for the crossties :) he’s 11.2hh so if I clip to the noseband the poor fella has to hold his head up

Nah. My FEI level fancy barn does it all the time. Drives me insane, but that’s how they do it- even on the 18hh ponies.

I knew a few rich ladies at my barn that did that, and I asked why once, they didn’t know… It was personal preference… I think it made the horse stand a little more forward in the cross ties so they wouldn’t wedge their butts against the wall possibly… Haha idk.

john French says jumping on foot helps to see distances. So here we are iequitate

Is that actually a thing?? Haha this would be such a good way for people to start seeing distances better with out screwing up their horses… And TBA if I’m jogging I’m always looking at my ‘distances’ with the cracks in the sidewalk…
