I recently purchased Luna, a TB/QH mix who is 3 years old. I moved her to her new home just under two weeks ago. I have noticed her gradually getting more and more bumps on her legs which I assumed were fly bites. After this weekend her bites have turned to scabs and cover much of ther front and rear legs.
I have started a first aid regiment of washing the legs down, washing with a betadyne/water solution, applying first aid spray, wrapping, and re-applying fly spray. This picture is at her second day of this regiment and even though it looks pretty bad it is better than it was the day before.
Do you think this will work to get her healed? Is it possbily going to take her time to build up resistance to the type of insects at the new farm? Any insight in to why this happened and how to keeep it from happening again is greatly appreciated. Luna is my first horse.
