HERDA (Hereditary Equine Regional Dermal Asthenia)

Fran Jurga's blog has an interesting post on HERDA today.   Further reading indicates there are some similarities to DSLD-ESPA listed in the post, such as:

  • HERDA is a connective tissue disease  
  • HERDA  horses have loose, stretchy skin, and
  • Cornea and aortic valves have been affected
  • HERDA is compared to EDS in humans
