It looks like he has scratcched himself somehow.Perhaps on course sand or small gravel or even large sticks in your shavings..Have you looked.closely at your shavings and stall walls?

His stall has no mats and I try to keep enough shavings in there, but the dirt underneath is rough. It would be my dream to move him somewhere nicer, but do to finances I can't afford to move him. The whole facility has bad ground for horses but the owner wont do anything about it, she wont even clean her horses stalls or take them out.

The shavings are pretty good shavings and I always make sure there aren't any large sticks or anything like that.

I have been putting BlueKnote in the morning and Corona at night.


Yea she doesn't do anything with them. I feel so bad for them, but there is nothing I can do because she feeds them (at least her husband does) and get all the shots, does worming and gets their feet trimmed. But she just leaves them in their stalls all day and night. They look so sad. I really wish I could do something.
