These were something that showed up in a very short period of time and the harness was used a lot but not for a lengthy period of time. They went away by the next summer when we clipped him again.
This is not common for the skin to repair itself, but it is possible. They are no big deal if they do not go away.
I also agree with this. Some of them will fade over time if the ill-fitting tack isn't used anymore. It doesn't happen all the time, but it does happen occasionally. The thing is, there really isn't anything you can do about it beyond just making sure that the tack you
use fits. They'll either fade away on their own or they won't.
