The gelding I used to have would get horrible scratches on the socks on his back legs. The best thing that I found was medicated udder balm. Ideally, pull the scabs off, I would soften them with hot water or the udder balm and let it sit for a while and then pick as much off (they will bleed some, so don't be alarmed), after you get as much as you can off put more of the udder balm on. If your horse is on pasture board you may want to cover it. Just wrap it with cotton and vet wrap.
If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question, or asked the question wrong.
