Phebes has that crusty stuff just below the fetlock. You talk about a hard thing to clear up. We are making progress...using desitin zinc, neosporin, antifungal, and steroid cream. Before that is applied she gets scrubbed with iodine shampoo. She is getting a little better about being treated, as it was tough going for awhile, with her wanting to kick.
I gave Phebes last night off. She had a bath, her favorite "glop" meal, and a flake of timothy hay. What are the chances that this white horse will be white come Saturday? ~Endurance Granny
