Is this rainscald??

I have been told by many that it is...and I have also been told by many that it is not. I am just looking for your opinions about it. It's the white hair. It is also blotchy and missing in some places. The white spots go up his back up neck.

Is this the same thing as Rain Rot? I don't know if you can make the spots dissappear (if you were hoping too.) White hair is scaring and we had an arab I use to ride that got Rain rot in California before they moved him up to Utah.

Hey sweetie :)

I do believe that is healed over Rain Rot/Rain Scald. The white is from scarring, when the bacteria got in those spots between the scabs that form when the horse develops Rain Rot, and got very much infected killing off the healthy hair and skin, making the hair grow back white.

I knew a mini that had it so bad, they looked like a Giraffe =/

Rain Rot sucks. My ex let both my horses get very severe rain rot before I picked them both up. He also starved them.

Joey is completely healed, but he still has a wee bit of what appears to be greasy heel.. but im fixing that too :) Rain still has some problem areas on her shoulder and I am continually airing out her coat =) She is SO wooly booly..

There is nothing to do about that scaring though, that's a permanent mark she will bear =/

Poor horse! I've seen alot of rain rot before but nothing so severe that it resulted in scarring. Either that horse was severely neglected at some point or it has extremely sensitive skin.

When we went to pick up our section D colt he had rain rot badly now we're used baby oil on it and its clearing up really well, but we did clip him so we could get the baby oil in contact with the rain rot. Hope I some how helped you like with the baby oil?

I would say this is the scarring of rain rot, ther is a product you can buy from health food shops called "ABC jell", I have had wonderful results from this, where the hair from infected cuts, have grown back the normal colour. Be patient it takes time to work.
Good luck
