Fungus? Pictures!

Hey all!

So I recently moved my horse to a new barn and the day after he got off the trailer I noticed this new growth of stuff on his back leg. It's only on the one leg, only in this one spot and it hasnt really changed in the last 3 weeks. He's out in a dry paddock (we live in colorado) so it's not due to rain or soggy living conditions...Im pretty convinced he got it from another horse on the transport trailer.

I've washed it with chlorahex but it doesnt seem to do anything. I have a vet coming out to the barn for vaccines in two weeks so Im going to ask him about it then..but I was hoping someone on here might know what it is! He doesnt like you messing with it, but he isnt's very strange!

Dang! Poor horse :[ It might be scratches. Not for sure though. Some of the horses at the stables I work at had it a little while back. It's contagious. It's not hard to get rid of. Scrub it with dishwashing liquid once a day for about a week or two should make it better. Then again, it might not be scratches. Haven't seen it in a while and I saw very very mild cases, so I'm not for sure it could be that. Google "scratches" maybe?

Look at this website and see if your horse fits this description:

Looks just like the start of scratches..... We have lots of scratches here in Wyoming, especially during the spring/summer months.
