Paul got it for the first time on both back legs this spring because of the wet soggy pastures. I have also heard about putting vasaline on the back of the legs or washing off the legs really well when you let them back in from grazing and drying them off very well. If they seem to be scabby, wash them with betadine and dry well. The scabs will eventually dry up and you can curry comb them away. Buying an anti-fungal spray is also a good idea. Even after Pauls' mudfever cleared up, I kept spraying the area so kill anything else that might try to infect him again.
