So today as I was grooming Rocky and I discovered a nasty looking scab that looked quite tender. Crusty and a little bit fleshy/weepy(Sorry not the best description)
I first noticed on Wednesday that there was a random patch of hair on his hind that was noticeably fluffier then the rest of his coat, it just kinda puffed out. Thought it was strange and squirted it with some avc just for the hell of it since I had some on me. On Thursday the patch had gone down and was barely noticeable. Sweet its sorted.. Friday I didn't see him and then today, Saturday, Bam! What the hell is that?!
Is this just a random patch of rain rot/scald? Or something else? He's uncovered most of the time and we have been having some quite wet humid weather, however all of this week has been fine. I've had come across rain rot before but not as random as this.
I've washed it with a iodine wash and sprayed it with some iodine spray afterwards. After I came back from my ride it looked a bit better. It probably is just rain scald but not 100% sure so any knowledge on the matter would be much appreciated
Oh and I also found a little version of it just above his coronet, above his heel bulbs.
