Nothing has really been changed that much. We got a new horse back in January, but they seem to get along really well. Her diet hasn't changed, she's had strategy and the same kind of hay since October and I haven't been doing anything different concerning riding. I got some tea tree oil today, so we'll see how that works on it. Thanks for all your help!!

If nothing has changed for her then I might treat it as a fungul infection. If, after you have treated it as you plan and you see no relief, you might consider a chat with the vet about nutrient or min/vit deficiencies. Just a broad thought. I really do hope this clears up soon for you!

I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried bannix? I have some and it says its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Do you think that would work too? Thanx!

It looks fungal to me. If the tea tree doesn't help try any antifungal cream (think athletes foot) followed by Desitin diaper rash cream. You can find both at any drug store.

Ok guys we finally called the vet because nothing seemed to be working. He gave us some medicine to put on it, its called griseofulvin paste. He said that it was fungal and it thrives when its wet and cold--- which is the kind of winter we've had. Now that it is looking a little better the hair is still off. What can I use to make it grow back? Thanks! :)
