It can be really tempting just to leave our horses rugged up at the moment… but you really need to check up on what’s happening underneath on a regular basis – ideally, daily.
Things to look out for are:
– Is the rug rubbing?
– Do they have early rain scald?
– Are they gaining or losing weight?
– Do they have any parasites (typically lice at this time of year)?
– Are there any wounds hidden by rug and/or mud?
