Day 14 of #the100dayproject. #100daysofLuke #horse  Vet appointment today for regular Spring shots and checkup. Luke’s lungs sounded good. The scabs on the front of his legs are probably from standing too close to the hay hut (not some odd form of scratches). Half of his mane disappearing is not because of some exotic skin condition as I feared but probably also a hay hut issue. Luke’s face going bald is just his odd way of shedding by losing his hair before the new stuff comes in (I was aware of this odd pattern but it seemed worse this year and with the mane thing, a woman worries). I mean, his face reminds me of a molting chicken! But please, do not tell Luke that I compared him to a chicken…  The vet’s prescription for all of this, “Get out and ride!"
