He has had no change in his diet. He hasn't moved to a new paddock. Same farrier. Still out and about being ridden. The paddocks were quite wet and are not extremely dry - other than that, no change in environment.
The vet has been out to him and he didn't know what it was and was going to get back to the owner but hasn't as yet.
She had her vet out and he wasn't sure what it was.
His coronet band was bleeding for a little while but this has stopped now. She used a anti-bacterial wash (not sure which one) and that seemed to have stopped the bleeding.
She asked me and I have no idea.
His chestnut and anus are also starting to look 'not quite right'.
I suggested shoes come off but unsure as to what his problem might be.
Is it some sort of fungal infection? Bacteria attacking his feet? Thrush?
