I'm thinking shadow has Rain rot. I haven't got any pictures, but on either side of his withers, along his back and just touching his rump he has lots of scabs and rough, dull hair. I Have never seen this and it isn't on my other horse?
Mum says it's just rain rot from the amount of rain we've had, and it manifested. She thinks he caught it off another old horse near him.
If it is rain rot, did I treated it correctly? I Washed him completely today while it was sunny, I used a regular shampoo and SCRUBBED all the scabs of him and picked the ones I couldn't get of with the water, I let him dry a bit and sprayed it all with a ton of iodine and walked him otu so he didn't roll or anything.
Is it the same thing as mud fever or greasy heel??
Anyone that replys thanks! :)
