    I don't think that scab would be easy to pick off.. it's kinda grown into the skin - something between a scabby looking thing and bump..
    Ick.... well please keep us posted, I'm interested to see what it is.
    Fingers crossed Indie never gets that, I think I'd go nuts.

    Could it be ringworm?

    Gosh I hope not.. it's the only spot on her body that I noticed too.. must be some sort of bacterial skin thing, cause it appeared after 1 week of rain we had, regardless of the fact I don't usually leave my horses stand out in the rain.. but her legs got pretty muddy couple of times (duh - he is a horse and a baby horse LOL)
    But I do groom them very frequently.. Will definitely update this thread once I know more so that other people know what it is if their horse gets something like that in the future.

    I'm definitely curious about what it is.

    So the vet came out and was not too concerned about it.. he gave my horses their fall shots and told me to soak the scab on top really well and then try to pick it off.. then we would see what is underneath..
    Anyways so I have been soaking this thing for 3 hours and it's not really much softer I just put a very wet rag and vet-wrapped around it (not tightly) and came back like 2 hours later and did the same thing letting her walk around with nothing on for 5 minutes..
    Since I just checked and it's stil not soft enough, I decided to leave the "dressing" on for the night and will see how it looks in the morning.. but he said that if this doesn't work he will have to come back and doze her and cut that thing off I really want to avoid drugging her right now, so I am praying the soak will work overnight better..
    ALSO, after the vet left we noticed a different kind of some on the inside of her upper lip.. I tried to google that and it seems to me like that one could be "summer sore"... I don't have a picture, but it looks just like this:
    strange sores on lips...

    I had just wormed her last Saturday and have been worming her religiously every 30 days.. this last dose had Ivermectin in it.. so I am hoping this will help..

    I would clip all the hair around that thing short if you can, so when you soak it, you can really penatrate just the 'sore' spot... I don't blame you for not wanting to drug her for that, either.

    Wow I was hopeing when I opened this I would read what it was and that its nobig deal. Good luck with the soaking I hope it works.

    Actually, this morning was very successful! The "thing" was like peeling orange skin! I WAS able to peel the stuff off!! The whole bump was like peeling off layers of gum-like thick skin.. weird, but I am so happy I was able to get it off.. now its' nice smooth layer of raw pink skin, so I sprayed it with vetericyn like the vet said, and will keep spraying daily.. I will try to snatch a photo this afternoon (I am at work now), but what a relief I was able to get it off without the vet having to hack at it

    Thats great news! I hope it gets all better soon.

    Glad you got it off.
    Did the vet say what it might be?
