I therefore bathed his leg in hibiscrub and left it be. I was just wondering what may have caused this irritation, in the past month I have moved yards and changed his bedding from straw to shavings. So im just wondering whether it could be an irritation due to changing his bedding and pasture and the soil around is clay soil which he is not used to, and the stress of him moving yards? Just wondering what you think, and any suggestions to treating this would be apreciated. I was advised to use hibiscrub which I have done, im just worried about my little boy
My horse has had the exact same thing on and off since I moved from a dry desert climate to a wet, icky humid one. The best thing I've found to do is just keep it clean with weekly scrubs and make sure you rinse EVERY time they sweat. If its the same thing as my guy it has nothing to do with an allergy as far as I can tell.
