We’re used to thinking of winter as blanket rub season. That’s the way I always saw it.
With Tristan’s host of immuno-suppressed issues have come a series of generalized allergic reactions. Last summer, he broke out into really nasty hives several times. So I got out the fly sheet I had bought on a whim almost 9 years ago because it was on clearance, and he wore it a few times when he seemed particularly bad.
This summer, we thought, well, we’ll get out ahead of it! He’ll just be one of those horses who wears a fly sheet all summer!
