Perfect!! Except for ...
Rainrot!! There is a horse we have just recently gone to look at, and he is pretty close to perfect. He is a four year old TB that trained for the track, but never raced. He has the most wonderful disposition, rides beautifully undersaddle, and is learning to jump, which is exactly what we wanted. On top of all of that, he is pitch black in the summer (as we are told,) and his name is Cowboy, which is the name of the horse that taught me how to jump years and years ago. (R.I.P)
The only issue is he has Rainrot. It is all over his rump, and down his back legs. I have never dealt with Rainrot before, and have no clue how to work with it. The lady that owns him now said that she just bathes him with Iodine shampoo (which we already have) but that it was going down more slowly. Is there anything more I can do? I have heard of Vitamin A, and I think MSG, but I really don't know what those are, or how to use them. Someone please help!! Also, this may be a stupid question, but Rainrot isn't contagious, is it? I have 3 other horses, and I don't want to have a mass problem. I don't suppose it is, because the lady selling is a lesson barn, so...? But still...
