I have a 14 month old tennesse walker that has developed a massive amount of warts on her chin and face over the last few months. What is the appropriate way to treat this condition?

I have had a few horses go through this. They mostly went away on their own but if they are affecting your filly's vision or bothering her in any way, I would have a vet check it out. The vet can probably give you a remedy.

Ditto that.

This seems to be common among the younger generations of Tennessee Walking Horses.

Don't shoot the messenger (me), but a long time trainer told me he cuts off a bit of several warts, mashes them up and puts in the feed of the horse in question.

The warts disappear and never come back.

I wouldn't try it because just thinking about it is too gross for me.

I would call the vet. If the vet said just wait it out, then I would start looking for a hollistic/herbal treatment on the internet

That is similar to what they do with cows. I know we cut them off and put 'em in a blender. I am pretty sure it was injected into the cow ---I stayed on the small animal and horse side of the practice more, so I am not 100% on how the cow was dosed back with the concoction.

In horses, it generally resolves on it's own after a couple of months. BUT, it is a viral infection and can be transmitted to other horses through contact with said horse, halters, brushes, your hands, etc.... Practice good hygiene and cleanliness.

It is mostly seen in horses under 3 yrs of age.

I found this article from The Horse.
