Funny skin issue *Pics of horse's condition added*
My OTTB just came back from a year lease in somewhat rough shape. He's a bit underweight, bad teeth, bad feet. His skin is a disaster--he's covered in bite marks. :mad: He's also covered in tiny tiny bumps. At first I assumed they were bug bites. But he's been home now for 3 days, and I've groomed him twice--tonight as I was currying I found that the little bumps are coming off. There are tons of them, all over the tops of his haunches and a little on his back as well. They're very tiny, like pencil point tiny. They come off as almost like little scabby gray things. Is this the start of rain rot? I am going to assume that it will resolve quickly with good care, grooming, and nutrition (I've ordered a skin/omega 3 supplement), but is there any cause for concern here? What the heck is it?
