    Warning horse butt images Highlander is a purebred Arabian gelding who is turning 30 this month. Since September, he has been dealing with itchy butt cheeks that won’t go away. He lives 6 hours from me at a stable where I use to live. The stable owner and I are at a loss of what to try next...

    My 6 year old Morgan gelding has been developing skin issues in the winter months (Alberta, Canada). Last winter I noticed the issue in February. It presented more like ringworm than rain rot, but the lab results came back inconclusive. He was initially treated with tea tree oil and athletes...

    So my mare has had these bumps on her back. Almost in the center and maybe 2-4 inches down her side(on both sides). I can touch them all I want and they don't hurt her, and it's not from my saddle, or my pad. They've been there for a year and a half. Is this something I should talk to a vet about?
