Last winter my horse suffered terribly with mud fever, literrally spent all winter in his box and as a 5 year old that was hard work.
This winter i have been careful as to when he goes out, and havent had it return.
He has just had back shoes and is brushing his back legs so today i put on a pair of tri zone all sport boots whilst he was schooled for 45 mins only to find some hair loss and a bit of oozing like mud fever.
So i am now wondering is he has an allergy to neoprene boots. I obviously dont want to use fleece lined ones as i am worried about his legs over heating. I can of course bandage but i want more protection when we are jumping.
Can anyone please recommend me anything?
