    What Is This?

    This is a friend of mine's standardbred. He got this one day. She applied bluing to it to help heal it, that is what you see in the pictures. Any input is helpful. Thank you

    You may want to keep an eye on that, it is hard to see and could just be a bug bite but also, even though it is in an unusual spot hopefully it is not a tick.

    It looks like a bite from another horse.

    That's a good point. There is lots of ticks in the area.

    But as far as the bite and kicks, he is pastured alone.

    The pictures aren't very clear but it appears to just be a minor injury to me. He could have scraped it on the fence or a tree or he could have rolled on a rock. Horses can injure themselves on invisible dangers. I wouldn't worry about it. It will heal up just fine.
