Hey, so I said I'd keep you updated: The vet came to see Ellie today, he said to stop washing her legs entirely as mud fever is better left to dry he gave me fucidine gel to rub on the worst of it but told me to leave the nasty infected one til tomorrow when he's going to take a sample and send it to the lab (HOORAY!)
So by tomorrow we may actually know what we're dealing with and be prescribed the right antibiotics! It's such a relief to be told I don't have to spend 2 hours a day washing and drying her big feet :)
I'll keep you posted...

The vet's been, taken his sample (Not a nice procedure!) Ells bells has been diagnosed with Folliculitis. The biopsy will be sent today and they will come back to me with results as to what bacteria is infecting her legs. I now have a sulking horse with a staple in her leg but hopefully will all be worth it!
