Did the vet actually come out and see the foal or just diagnose over the phone?

My first thought seeing her missing hair and the fact she was laying in pee/poo was scalding from urine and feces.

That was my first thought too. He came out and did blood work. Gave her a steroi shot and antibiotics. I've been clearing up all the yuck since then and have been trying to keep all areas as clean we possible to avoid further situations.

This foal is only 11 days old correct? Do you know what shots or vaccines were administered to her, and have you told your vet about them? The majority of vaccines are not labeled for use in foals under 90 days, and some not even until 6 months. Giving them earlier than 90 days in usually only done in cases of imminent outbreak where the benefit outweighs the risk. So for anyone reading that didn't already know, this is why the mare is boostered prior to foaling.

Was an IgG test performed on the foal after she was born? If she is having an immune issue caused by environmental or chemical factors, it would have been nice to know that complete passive transfer was achieved. Also, since the mare seems unaffected, you may want to ask your vet if a plasma transfusion might be of any help at this point.

I would put mom on inspected hay only and quit grain & pasture for at least a week just to eliminate as much of the culprits as possible. The foal is really not old enough to do much more than have a little taste of grass, hay, or grain as milk is the main source of nutrition. For good measure, spraying broadleaf herbicide on the pasture to kill any weeds or clover might also be worthwile. The dirt in your drylot could also be irritating. Maybe try some bagged shavings or clean straw in the area the foal likes to sleep.

I hope you find out what is causing the trouble!

Day one vs day 14. She's getting big! And her wounds seem to be healing up nicely.

Foal
When she was born he drew blood and we found out my mare didn't transfer her immunities as well as we would have liked... But could have been worse. I'm not sure what all he did to her at that point...gave her a paste. I'm guessing a wormer. When he was out to check her early last week he drew blood again, gave her a steroid and an antibiotic. I haven't recieved anything as to what he gave her. Her blood work looked good though. Liver levels were slightly elevated but not bad...which is what led him to the photosensitization. He called today to check on her and said to continue what we are doing and to keep him posted. I am still thinking it could be the fact that she was laying in poo and muck. Looking back at pictures she always had mud in the spots the sores showed up.
