Poor little tyke!
Our Miniature stallion has some sort of an infection.
I've noticed him feeling a little sluggish the past week, he was letting the girls boss him around and usually he is the boss but a very nice/sharing boss. The girls haven't been allowing him to eat with them which is highly un-usual. So I've been watching him.
This morning when grooming his belly my brush came up FULL of puss/goo. I took a peek and everything is swollen and it was literally dripping clumps of puss. The smell is beyond horrid.
I cannot get a vet out for a few days so in the mean time I washed him up good twice today, trimmed the area, started him on some antibiotic tucoprim powder.
Any ideas on what caused this? Seems to be coming from in front of his sheath but really I cannot tell where exactly it is from. Heres a picture after I cleaned him up.
He hasn't bred any mares for three going on four months, his one breeding mare is bred and the other is "a dud" she's just his buddy, never comes into heat. Could it be somehow from breeding that long ago? Ideas?
