Rain Rot, its rotten and yes we can stay proactive and PREVENT IT!!
-BASIC HORSEMANSHIP: BEST way to prevent… Groom Daily, good hygiene and clean brushes!
Pick a proper curry too. Not just one to shed hair but one that will lift the dander and dirt out, without that your horse is not clean!! Currying will spread the natural protective body oils that keep the skin healthy and defends the invasion of the bacteria. With proper currying and hair brushing it allows oxygen to reach the skin. (Check out our curry for the best in currying)
-Keep the skin heathy with currying along with Hydrate 24. It will hydrate and condition the skin so it does not become dry and cracked. Dry skin ccompromises the skin, cracking it, leaving it vulnerable to the bacteria where it can enter and propagate!.
-Reduce environmental factors: provide shelters during rainy weather.
-KEEP Mud off the skin….again curry daily!
-During the cold season if you have blanketed, remove blanket every few days so skin can breathe , now curry too!
-Every few days the horse should get the minimum of a curry and brush over the entire body. Apply some shock or polisher to the manes, tails, forelock and feather too! Finish with Hydrate 24 system and buff for longer protection.
-If you don’t have the time to bring your horse in and “Make Pretty” just get the dirt off, keep hair and skin healthy…CURRY CURRY CURRY!
