Allergy Socks – Ain’t Gonna Happen

Okay…I gave the allergy socks a second try.  Poor Kobi – he’s my guinea pig for every wacky idea I feel the urge to try.

I held Kobi’s hoof (with a ziploc bag over it) and mom attempted to push the sock up Kobi’s hoof.  We got a little further this time…We got it past the hoof, but not up his leg.  We peeled it off (again, he was so good) and attempted Sugar’s Quarter Horse size as opposed to his pony size (please don’t tell him we put the pony on him).  Hers didn’t work any better than his.

We had to manipulate his leg and hoof to all sorts of positions to attempt this (I really wish I would have video taped it, but couldn’t since this was already a two person job).  We decided not to try it on Sugar (she was traumatized enough with her ears today, we didn’t want to fuss with her feet as well).

So, I’ll call the company and return them next week…and back to the drawing board with Kobi’s allergies!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
