She is turned out next to other horses but there is a fence inbetween. It can't be bites from a horse because it is in too many spots.

It must be the hay that is deficient because I had her at home up until February 1st on our own hay and minerals and now the hay is a bit different with a different grain.

Now I have to figure out where to get injectable Vitamin A, I'm hoping that a vet would have that cause I'm not sure where else to find it.

Try a feed or farm store for the injectable vitamin A.

I haven't used it myself, but I have read about it on here and I think it is sold in the injectable form for use in cattle.
