Yes I am sure glad too. Chip is an excellent buck and so easy going, I just didn't want to lose him!

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

My mare has this exact same thing!!!! It wasn't there Saturday and then I went up to the barn after work Monday and there is was! It was a much milder version them your horses but I have been washing them with anti-fungal shampoo and drying them really well. I don't get it because there is NO mud or water anywhere so I think it came from her pee and mud (splashing on her back legs).

I have had her for 3.5 years and never had this issue before and it freaked me out- so ill keep doing what I am doing and hope it gets better like yours (it already looks better)...

kchfuller - Good Luck! It's definitely hard to see a horse suffering from this, but it does appear that they can fight it with our help.
