    I don't think there is anything to give as a preventitive if it's drainage from bites. My barn did decobweb when we started seeing these and that seems to have done the trick.

    I had two that showed stuff like this and they were both....grey. One was probably spider bites. The other a reaction to an overdose of routine meds and supps. 5 baggies with day of the week right on them, dumped all at once. By an idiot BO who returned from a 3 year absence and immediately instituted "minimalist" management theories. Cost me $600 in vet bills.

    Lumps went away in 10 days. That was 9 days after I left that barn.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

    The horse world. Two people. Three opinions.

    Please keep us posted. My guy had so many yesterday (and they were huge- all shoulders and back) I could not put a saddle on him. I would love to cold hose him but not when it is 50 degrees! The anti hyst seems to be not helping. Ps I am also in Indiana???? Weird.
