Skin problems. Does anyone know what this is?
Hey I was wondering if anyone could tell me what this is on my horse... He gets it every summer and I can't for the life of me figure out what it is. I had my BO have the vet check it when he was out there (I was unable to be there when the vet was out there) and he told me the vet didn't think anything of it.. I am not so sure I believe that. I get the impression that he forgot to ask the vet and just gave his opinion but I have no proof. I am getting ready to call the vet out myself, but if it is something that is commonly dealt with and not that big of a deal, I don't want the vet to come out for nothing. My horse isn't in any pain or irritated because of it, it just looks bad to me. They are small bumps that come up, scab over and fall off repeatedly. They seem to only come up on his legs (mainly front), his chest, neck, face and up on his forehead. I am guessing that maybe he has an allergy to bug bites? Any advice or help would be appreciated :) He has been getting this for as long I have known him, even before I owned him. These are some pictures I took of it when it was just starting out but I will get more recent ones when I go out there again.
