Hard to tell, but looks like fungus to me! Iodine shampoo baths or MTG usually clear that up.

Ill try and get some pics today but that is exactly the same as what jarred has. He only gets them on the top of his neck at a spot where flies could get him even with rugs on. They might well not be fly related but its odd that they look so much the same as jarreds

I had a horse when I was a teenager that had excess calcium building up in him. It caused calcerous (sp.??) lumps in his sinuses (on the bone) and on his legs. The lumps in his airways were so bad that once he started working he wouldnt be able to breathe properly and would go nuts :( he was retired after that.

Oh ok. Well the southern Show circut is coming up soon, and he is in the led classes and the ridden hack, and I need to get rid of these lumps!

Someone told me about bleach... I have used bleach with greasy heel, well its related to skin... so yeh I don't know.

I would be interested to compare the two! Thanks Jazzy :)

Be careful of bleach.. It can burn not to mention bleach the hair.. I suggest something with tea tree oil(melalucca), a produce called Calm Coat works well, or what I use most of the time on skin yuckies is Desitin, aka babybutt cream.

I havn't heard of it burning the horses skin, it kills all the fungal skin...it works wonders on greasy heel.

Acually, I have cut out his Millrun and im feeding him equalibrim, which seems to be working, the lumps are reducing. But are still present...

Bleach doesn't sounds very good

Anyways, it looks like an allergy or fungus to me. Try some horse shampoos that treat allergies/fungus.

Does it cause him pain?

If it lasts for awhile, you should probably get the vet out.

Bleach can be VERY harmful to skin. It makes my hands painfully break out and bleed something awful and it can happen to a horses skin too.

Ofcourse I water the bleach down. Its not straight bleach....god no! Well its going, slowly. My vets on holidays atm, so if the sores stay around for another 1 week I will call the vet out.
Thanks for your help :)
