A surprising allergy  

In the "good to know for future reference" category:

Erin, do not EVER rub your eyes again with fingers full of horse.

The last time my eyes were this swollen (nearly shut) was the 4th of July, right after I spent some quality time with Fellow, walking back and forth from the other pasture.

I was already a little sniffly tonight even before we went to see the horses.  But this thing with my eyes is positively unique to horse-related experiences.  So, okay, I'm allergic to horses.  But I suspect it's only if I rub my eyes after handling them.  (I hope so.  I like elvinborn's horses.)

Ow.  Ow ow ow.

In other news, it was a wonderful day.

It might not be exactly an allergy. I am in no way allergic to cats or dogs, can rub and pet and snuggle even, but if I rub my eyes after handling them, then my eyes do get like that.
