Injury Prone Horse
I am making this thread to help my cousin (her story, not mine):
I have had my horse Odin for a few monthes now, recently I have began to notice spots all over him that look like the hair has been ripped out but some spots bleed. The BO says that it is from the other horses but I think there's more to it, I think he may have a skin condition or just really sensitive skin because I am constantly treating his wounds or can't ride because they are where the saddle touches.
This doesn't happen sometimes, there are new wounds every time I go to see him & I am beginning to think something is wrong.
What can I do to help him & keep him from getting these wounds?
(Back to Bella)
IMO, the wounds look sort of like rub marks but there are A LOT of them, he mostly gets them on his back (around the saddle area & rear end) but he also has some on his neck and even around his eyes. They seem to heal pretty fast but they come faster then they heal.
I'm thinking a blanket may be some help if it is from the other horses, any suggestions??
