Horse Allergy Tests - SI

Here are a few pictures from when Florin went for allergy testing in 2012. He was sedated and then injected with various test substances; the lumps were measured to see what he reacted to the most. He was kept in 'horspital' for 2 days and was sedated for the procedure which is why he looks sleepy in the middle picture! The hardest thing to test for is midge saliva which is the cause of 'Sweet Itch'.
