Bacon grease is the stuff that comes off when you fry bacon right? Not very natural, or again like I said; sanitary.

But it's your horse, all the luck to you.

Fistulous withers is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterised by pus-filled wounds and swelling on the horse's withers. The swelling is called a fistula and the withers are the highest part of the horse's back.
Fistulous withers is the term also used to describe any severe withers skin condition.
The organism Brucella Abortus, normally found in cattle, is the main cause of fistulous withers. The organism enters the horse's body through an orifice i.e. the mouth, nose or eyes, or through broken skin.

I'm quite sure Sampson doesn't have any sort of skin condition, just a simple saddle sore from someone riding him with a poor fitting saddle or without a pad. His sore has not had any pus that I've seen and is healing up beautifully with the Triple Care Wound ointment I've been putting on it - I check it every day and apply more. Today it is looking especially good; The bare skin around the sore looks healthy and is not inflamed at all. I am having the vet come check him out this week though as he is new and I know very little about him. Thanks for the information though!
