    My horse is an Irish cob and we do a lot with him, including showing, dressage, show jumping, eventing etc. I was riding him last thursday practicing for a dressage competition and he didn't feel 100%.

    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...
