Allergy to horses and the benefits of Curly


Allergy to horses in a few words by INRA 2013:

Nearly 2.5% of the French population is allergic to horses. The frequency of allergies to the horse is constantly increasing and has doubled in France in 20 years, in parallel with the development of the practice of riding. This is a problem for both riders and professionals in the industry. One study showed a higher frequency of sensitization, rhinitis and asthma in grooms. Several studies have also shown an awareness of urban and peri-urban populations without direct contact with horses.

There are more and more cases of allergy to horses, which have doubled in the last twenty years. The curly is hypoallergenic, this is the least Seborrhoicus protein present in the bulb of curly hair, than in other horses. This carries the allergens. Less protein Seborrheic = less allergies + less allergens!


For the hypoallergenic Bashkir Curly to be fully "hypoallergenic" it must be isolated from horses called "normal" a few days before its contact with the allergic person. Before the first meeting with a Curly, the allergic person should be tested in her home, with a sample of hair belonging to the Curly concerned. It might, at first contact, have reaction, therefore, the person must bring his medication, according to the severity of her allergies, under the supervision of their doctor. If there was reaction, the experiment wll be repeated with another curly hair.

There are no Curlys that are "NON-ALLERGIC", they are "HYPOALLERGENIC. This means that a person allergic to horses can tolerate Curly reactions with reduced allergic syptoms. There may be a reaction to one Curly but not to another.

The North American Curly : Is he hypoallergenic ?

Extract translated from sweetened ICHO ... "The answer to this question is being considered at this time in Germany. A lock of hair from" Mary "(* Ebony's May Day Queen 1137 ABC P-F) belonging to Gaby Karsher Curly breeder in Germany, is given to Dr. Frank Jugert of the University of Aachenpour a project on the allergy test. He and his team are involved in research documented to the extent of the hypoallergenic Curly. They test a number of other breeds of horses to make a comparison.

They follow strict protocol to determine whether they can actually provide evidence of an allergic reaction mitigated by a Curly compared to other equine breeds. In 2000, breeders of ICHO submitted 24 samples of Curly hair, placed in quarantine, so they can follow step by step procedures for a correct test. 
February 2002. University of Aachen has announced that the project is now complete. Dr.Jugert, combined the results in a report. Meanwhile, the project leader said:

"Yes, the Curly is hypoallergenic.
This seems due to a difference in protein structure of his skin "(ICHO)

"All the curly have a strong tendency to be hypoallergenic. There are few reports of non-Curly Curly (straight) which are also hypoallergenic. It seems that the hypoallergenic Straights are usually the product of a cross-Curly/Curly. We need more search results to verify this information and to explain why the Curly is hypoallergenic. "ICHO
Several Morgan horses happen to be carrying the hypoallergenic gene. Knowi
ng that a Morgan stallion (Ruby Red King) is one of the founding stallions of the breed Curly, 
perhaps hypoallergenic gene that is found among Curls "straight" (non-features).
