Scabby Sore on Vixen
Vixen is a 9 month old Tennessee Walk. Before I got her, she was never worked with, never handled, never even came within 10 feet of a human. When we weaned her, she has changed completely. She's my baby, and trusts me. Well, last week I finally got her halter trained, and this week I was introducing her to brushing. I used the curry comb and I noticed this patch of scabby skin on her. The scabs come off with ease, and the skin itself is soft (i know probably not suppose to touch it). I go out there every day to brush her, but I steer clear of the scab. I do push the hair back to look at it. It doesnt seem to bother her. She has no hair in this area. What could it be. I gave the brushes a bleach bath after I used them the first time and ran over the scabby sore area.
