    DO NOT SCRUB. Scrubbing will make this condition much, much worse.

    Pastern leukocytoclastic vasculitis (PLV) is immune-mediated. It is not caused by bacteria or fungus, though secondary...

    I understand how hard it is to let go of a chance, any chance, that a horse you care for might improve enough to at least be a pasture puff. My gelding had a chronic illness that prohibited turnout,...

    I'm jealous! I only left Montana because I couldn't find a job, and I've been trying to get back ever since. I boarded at a dressage barn near Missoula. Large indoor, great trainer, regular...

    When you automatically type the "I'm not a vet/you should call a vet" disclaimer on every post you make in the Horse Care forum.

    I believe the adverse effects on the hair coat are more common in small animals than in horses, and are often less dramatic in horses, but it's still something to be aware of.

    Sorry to hear you're dealing with this. I lost my horse to equine granulomatous disease. In some horses, EGD is limited to the skin, but in other horses, like my gelding, it also affects internal...

    My horse was on pentoxifylline not for RAD but for a severe case of leukocytoclastic vasculitis that didn't respond well to steroids alone. It did help him a lot, though it turned out the LV was...

    It's good to see this thread. I've been away from horses since my gelding died. I couldn't afford another horse then, as the vet bills from the last year of his life were overwhelming. For a few...

    Go for it.

    One thing to keep in mind is that fiddlers (of various traditions) generally play by ear. I played viola as a kid and thought I wasn't much good. When I took up the fiddle years...

    I have a Twisted Tails bracelet, and I LOVE it. I'm not really a jewelry person, but I wear it everyday. Kim Howell, who "is" Twisted Tails, makes her own end caps and beads, too, which adds an...

    I'll second you on this one. The Isabell's definitely not for me. (FWIW, I find the Bates version slightly more comfortable than the Wintec version for whatever reason, but only just.)

    This. "Looks like scratches" is meaningless. Dozens of skin conditions look EXACTLY like the bacterial infection we usually call "scratches," so if what you usually use to treat it isn't working,...
