My mare gets little skin problems around her hindquarters and her belly, which turn to scabs and then fall off. They don't seem to irritate her, and she doesn't flinch when I touch them. I don't think they are bites because they don't get swollen or bleed or anything, and I don't think its a skin condition because it never appears on her neck, shoulders, legs or near her spine. The only thing I can think of is that they are to do with the heat, but apart from put cream on them I don't really know what to do. I spoke to my vet who didn't seem concerned about them as they aren't causing pain. Any one have any other ideas? Or anyways I can prevent them? Although I've been told they are just cosmetic, if anyone can help me it would be better for her.
Thanks in advance :)
