Kinna update (with yukky pictures)

Went down to see Kinna again, last time her skin had gone all crispy and this time, it's all fallen off!! So she still looks like a welfare case but is itchy rather than sore and let us slather her new pink bits in Sudocrem......


You can really see how the black bits have stayed on and only the white skin has peeled off. I even got a chunk of it to keep ;-)


Strangely, the skin round her eyes has grown back pink, makes her look a bit different!
Squaw's blood tests show that she is allergic to St John's Wort which is the probable culprit so had been eliminated from the paddocks. Kinna is back on form and was bouncing around (even in this heat) playing with the mule. So we'll know for the future to keep an eye out for SJW in any paddock she's in......

What a nightmare! (unintended pun) Hope she doesn't get sunburned now as a result.

OMG poor little thing. I know it's on the mend now but it looks even worse.
Jeez, you can never be too careful.
