cutter has some rainrot/scurvy/fungis stuff on his buttcheck, and a couple other random places on his body.
if i pull lightly on the hair it comes out in clumps where the area is so im assuming thats what it is.
someone told me that rainrot/scurvy/fungis does permenant damage to the hair folicle causing permenate hair discolor.
the rainrotty spots on cutter are growing in brown (hes a palomino). will it really always be brown or will it go back to gold color?

When the saddlebred I used to have had a fungus, his hair grew back out the same color as the rest of his coat. He was a liver chestnut. I also used Betadine scrub and used (if I remember right) a 1:12 of Clorox and water as soon as I found out what it was.

Does he shed out to be a darker golden in the spring?

Hmm not sure.. I have a palomino paint and last summer he got a fungus on his neck and it grew back the same color. I used MTG, it has worked well for him :)

Hi there! The color should not change as long as you treat it properly. I'm with gizpeptig... Shapely's MTG works AMAZINGLY and the hair grows back really quickly, soft and shiny! Just use a little every day, 2xs a day if possible and do not wash it out. I'd wash the area's maybe once a week with betadine if you've got a really bad case.

Ive been using EQYSS skin problem spray, and my mom just bought the EQYSS Micro tek shampoo so ill be giving him a bath this weekend.
hes only had it for about a week, and he has some bald spots on his face around his star and i dont know if its a rub or rain rot too. no more hair has since fallen out

i dont remeber him shedding out to such a brown color, i think he darkens just alittle to a soft like light gold.

I'm with the MTG as well, although I've heard really good things about Eqyss for rainrot as well. I've used MTG on my dark bay with no color change, and I've also used the Eqyss moisturizing shampoo for his itchy bum, which worked very well.

Some horses just change color when they shed every year. We have an appy/arab who goes anywhere from a pale gold to golden to a brown golden when his sheds his winter coat, which is white!

The eqyss stuff isn't strong enough to kill the BACTERIA that causes rain rot. You need to use betadine scrub. You can get it cheap at walmart. Use the betadine heavily on those spots and the eqyss everywhere else to help prevent the bacteria from spreading.
