Re: Re: scratches
I found a really good article in John Lyons magazine (the name of which I
can't for the life of me remember this minute) about rain rot/scratches. I
remember it was the May issue...it was very informative and educational.
From what I understood rain rot and scratches are a fungus/bacteria and
similar to each other in some aspects and can be started by even a minor
scratch from a stick or scrape where the bacteria takes hold...it can also
be spread to other horses who get a nick or cut, etc. Don't quote me on
this but perhaps someone can actually FIND their issue and share the info
on ridecamp with us.
