Mud Fever?? How to get rid of it?
With the changes in weather, the paddocks at my barn get muddy. There isn't a great rotation system set up and the geldings all go out in one paddock. So my horse either stands in mud all day, or inside all day...
Since I would much prefer him out, I would clean his feet and legs thoroughly when he came in. But I must have missed a spot :( It seems he has just a little bit of mud fever on one leg. On the back just above his hoof. Its small, and like I said, only on the one foot. But he has had some swelling in his fetlock I thought was stocking up. But now I fear its the mud fever,
I do I get rid of it? Does it take a long time? And can he go outside while I treat him if the mud isn't bad?
