Your dogs, cats and you can get it. So be very careful. Wash clean before you leave the barn. You can carry it home by touching things in your car. Get some lysol wipes maybe to carry with you. They really should separate. Maybe if your vet gives the direction to do so they will comply. But she can't be able to touch other horses over fence line.

Okay, if I can, she will be at least 2 pens over, in a smaller pen, but the BO's were doing something in there today, so I don't think I will be able to use it. There might be another pen available, but I am not sure, Breeze gets nervous when she is left by herself too (without me or the other horses in there) she is fine with me and not other horses, but when I leave, she has a freak out.

She will get over it. She's buddy sour. That will make trying to ride her worse so best to make her get over it now.

She will eventually calm down... I don't think really she is really herd-bound because when I am there she is calm and good, but it is only when I leave she will start running around calling out. I want to get her use to being alone, so she is not in the future, so yes, I would like to get her over it now... but I can lead her away from the others, out of sight and she doesn't even look back or reply to their calls, but is focused on me.

I know! When I first found out she had ringworm (this morning, when the BO told me what it actually was) I was so irritated, I was scratching everywhere!

We had a NASTY case of it in our barn at the racetrack last year. Pretty much all of the horses got it and it does not go away on its own. I can't remember what we did to get rid of it, but wash everything. I know I hated going out to the barn because I was terrified that I would get it.

My mare got ringworm a few years ago, not even sure how.

Use an Anti-Fungal spray or cream and it'll clear it up in no time.

CopperTox will take care of it. So will auto oil. Just apply at least an inch around the visible hair loss/scabs. Vaseline may do it as well, to suffocate the fungus. This one needs air to survive. As told to me by a vet. The leather halter, wipe it down with 50/50 water and white vinegar and hang outside in the sun, inside out.

My mother had ringworm before, and I got it from her. I had to put band-aids over my rings so as to keep my hands from spreading the infection from touching them, and passing it on.

If you don't separate, your horse will pass it on to others, and then likely the cycle will continue, and you would have wasted time, effort and money trying to kill the disease when your failure to separate just makes it worse.
