Odd scabbs on front cannon bone
So my mare is having a issue with a scabbing on her leg. There's no puss or swelling and she is NOT limping. I noticed this about two weeks ago and put McPherson on it, but I was gone for a few days so it was not put on those days that I was gone. Starting this week: on the inside of her leg, we put McPherson on(second picture) and the outside of the leg we have Well-horse spray on (first picture). The Well-Horse dyed her hair on that part of the leg red a little bit.
But basically it is scabbing and I have one idea that might have caused it, otherwise not a clue. After we bathed her for our week long fair (her first year) we shaved her white legs. We might have cut her a tiny bit and the cuts got worse, but we don't know.
So if you guys could give your advice on what to do and not to do, and tell us what you think it is that'd be great adn extremely helpful. Sorry for the small sideways pictures.

Though I don't see any pictures, it sounds like the infection Scratches, which is easily taken care of, but I'm not sure without the pics.

That's what I was thinking too, sixlets. But, as you said, without pics I can't really say what it might be.

Here I'll try again to get the pictures up. The pictures who on my computer, I wonder why they don't on your computers. Anywho, sorry for them being sideways. The first one is the side with McPherson on it and the second is the side with Well-horse spray on it (it looks worse due to the red dye in the spray.)
