30 years old pony has suffered from a mysterious skin condition
for the last 11 years. Despite intensive veterinary help, including
blood samples, tissue biopsies, hair and horn examinations the condition
has been diagnosed as atopy of unknown origin. His coat was dry
and pale in colour and sparse with areas around the head.
The skin over his neck and trunk was thickened and corrugated with
raised papules and lumps. His tail growth was very poor, leaving
him with little to swat the summer flies. For the last four years
his coat would shed in the early Spring, with little re-growth leaving
him nearly bald!

around his nail holes.

and hooves. I have never seen him looking better."
