My horse has recently started using a bit in the last two months, however he started using a new bot exactly like the old one this last week and on the edge of his lips or the corner were the bit comes out his skin is flaking off. Is this just because it will callous or is it something else? The inside of his mouth looks fine.
Also, he is new to being pastures with others, he is typically at the bottom of the pecking order and he is usually a calm and relaxed boy, but today when I went to see him this evening he had an inch round chunk of skin missing by his cheek, it is about two cantilevers deep, I rinsed it and sprayed it with antiseptic and bacterial spray, he had an inch cut on his back hindquarter and his neck was swollen.
