What's Happening to Her Mane?
This issue seemed small time compared to her feet, but last week when I started grooming her, her mane hair was coming out in clumps. It looked like she'd ratted it up by scratching it against the wood door. I looked at it and there didn't seem to be any signs of bites, open sores, etc., but there was what appeared to be swelling in tent like bumps. Her appetite is, of course, great and the rest of her body hair is fine.
Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this--viral, stress, change in diet, too much selenium, bites, etc?
Thanks for any input!
