    You realize posts #1 to #168 are from 2014? Things like order of go and results might be different, if you get confused, that's probably why. Time schedule may vary a little too.

    Try an antihistamine like Tri Hist if he scopes clean. I might try different bedding too, maybe swap stall location as well. It does not have to be dusty to your eye if he is allergic to something.
