    Whats this?

    I was cleaning Vida's feet this morning and was shocked to see this bright reddish area on her sole. I washed it and sprayed it with some AC vinegar. I was completely perplexed. There was no hole or foreign objects that I could see. Her hoofs are black so the blueish black coloring is normal. The red just freaked me out. It took about 15 min. Of worry before I discovered what it was. Any guess? Heres a hint, its seasonal

    This was taken with a phone camera so it doesn't do the color justice. It was very red and bloody looking.

    She was standing in a bunch of blackberries?

    Nope no blackberrys but your on the right track. This is my main riding mare Dave.
    Actually the black area didn't concern me just the reddish part. It ran down into and beside her frog.

    No idea what they're called, but they're little red berries on a bush.
    The thing that popped into my head was a holly bush and those berries, though I have no idea when the berries come at all.

    I'm interested to know the answer.

    I had a pocket full of this when I went out to feed the girls (I know not on my diet ) I had fed one to Vida the day before and she really liked it.
    I figured they all would but no.....They spit it all out on the ground.
    Vida must have gotten a piece stuck to and then mud backed against the bottom of her foot.
    Just one of those stupid things you think is a serious ailment but turns out to be a trick or treat.
