Thank you all soo mch for helping me !!!
Also one more question can you give your horse too much Gatorade ? Cause it's been super hot here in FL and I noticed she wasnt drinking and was barley pooping so I went out and bought a 15 gallon tub and put 11/2 scoop of gatorde powder and she guzzles it down and I've noticed she's back to normal pooping and peeing

A couple of thoughts you might keep in the back of your mind - if the stuff on her legs spreads, even if it seems to be getting better at first, it might be time to switch to something else. So if you don't get perfect results with it, I'd switch to Nolvasan (chlorhexadine ointment, ) or Vetericyn - it's a little pricy but it works quick on both fungus and bacteria.
On the eating/drinking problem - mix a little table salt into her feed and wet it down a little bit so she can't separate it out. Use trial and error - it's okay to put a tablespoon or two in there (try a little first, if you get too much she won't eat it.) The salt will make her thirsty and she should drink just plain water - a lot of it! I have an old guy that tends to colic, and this trick works for me every time, to get him to drink more.
