I see my horse 4 times a week. I last saw her on Sunday. After our lesson on sunday I decided to trim her bridle path and her whiskers. She was fine then and acted no differently.
Today I go out and find this on her. It is slightly ***** and bleeding a bit. It is also "hard" so to speak. I have no idea what it is. I called the vet hoping she might be able to know what it is over the phone, but she hasn't called back yet. My trainer thinks it is possibly from the trim that it was an ingrown hair that'd gotten very irritated. She was just fine on Sunday, so it happened between 6pm sunday and 5 pm Tuesday. I didn't see her yesterday though so I'm not sure what/when it happened. Has anyone ever seen anything like this or know what it could be?
Please help. I'm one of those people that majorly obsess over their horse. One little thing wrong and I panic and try to find out as much as possible. If it isn't better in a day or two, I'm calling the vet. Please let me know waht you think this could be. A bug bite that she rubbed? An infection of sorts? It is so small a thing, but I'm totally freaking out. She is my heart horse and I just bought her three weeks ago.
