    Skin Problems

    Hey all, I was reading through some of your post and saw that Texels are prone to fungal infections, would Abyssinians be prone as well?

Anyhow though, about a week ago I picked up two new little girls and one had an URI which I am giving medicine but the other I recently found has a flaky ear.
