Ok, 2 of my horses had mud fever last summer and it has never really gone away since. Its not very bad and they are not lame but it seems unusual that it is lasting over 6 months. I keep their legs trimmed around the area the scratches are but it doesnt seem to help. I've been putting on every cream and trying every idea I have come across but nothing helps. The vet said to just wait and it would clear up but I don't think it will. I havnt known him for long and Im not sure I trust his judgement as he is very old-fashioned. Im worried it might get worse. The horses have been kept in very dry conditions but, again, it seems to make no difference. Could anyone tell me more ideas I can try or advice? Has this ever happened to anybody else? If it helps, one horse has a white hoof and the other has a black leg.
Thanks for your time and I hope you can help me!
