    Sounds like the "scuzz" to me too. Another thing to try is washing it with betadine (rinse off) and/or spray on tinactin and leave on.

    Without pictures there's no real way to know, sounds to me what we call scurf, just built up grease and short shed leg hairs forming little clumps. People so often forget to brush legs, or only use a soft brush. Most horse appreciate a good soft curry in their legs at shedding season, especially shedding out their summer coat- the dead hairs get so itchy under the new winer coat

    This will do the trick, guaranteed, or your money back. It works on all kinds of scurf, rain rot, fungus, etc.

    I feel the need to order some of that just to have on hand.

    One year we had a terrible fungus that we couldn't get rid of, and one of the vets that works for Jeffers Vet Supply told us to get Captan and mix with water and douse it. Captan is a rose fungicide that you can buy pretty much anyplace. Anyway, it worked for us, I think it was two tablespoons of Captan per 1 gallon of water.

    Captan works even on pathogenic Ringworm. It is what we have always used for pathogenic fungi infections. It is what we use to disinfect brushes and pads etc if we get an outbreak of ringworm.

    For rain rot and non-pathogenic skin problems, most of which are caused by fungi and bacteria that normally inhabit the soil and live on horses' skin, clean up easiest with Vitamin A and do not get reoccurrences when it is used.
