Miles Licking Wood July 2014

Battle Rain Rot

Even though Miles is only my second horse, I’ve been an equestrian for more than 10 years. I’ve seen and dealt with my fair share of lameness, wounds and general equine issues. However, it never ceases to amaze me that no matter how much you think you know, there’s always something new you can learn about horses. Currently, Miles is teaching me all about rain rot… and I have to admit, it really sucks. I’ve definitely gone through a variety of emotions [from worry, to terror, to anxiety and even depression] but I’m starting feeling a bit better since this nasty fungus is finally starting to clear up. Anyways, I thought I’d share with you all a bit about the lovely stuff I’ve been dealing with… cause I know rain rot is extremely intriguing [heh].
