When the clock springs forward, horse owners everywhere rejoice. It means more time to spend with our equine companions, more time in the saddle and a sure sign that winter is on the way OUT. On the flip side it also means rain... lots and lots of rain. And with it, rain rot.
Rain rot shares comes from a bacterium called dermatophilus congolensis. This bacteria is in a family called actinomycetes, these little things act like both bacteria and fungi. Horses naturally have these organisms on their skin; they lay dormant until rainy, wet conditions cause it to flare-up.
The solution to starving off this bacterium is keep your horse’s skin dry. One option is keeping your horse inside. But this simply isn't an option for some horses. Another way to keep your horse dry is to use a turnout sheet. But this can trap moisture and could actually fuel the bacteria.
So, we need to keep our horse’s skin dry, but how?
