Re: sarcoids


I didn't know what a sarcoid was until my horse got one.  It
looks like a skin tumor, black and kind of dry and scaly.  I
don't know if they can look different.  The next time you
have your vet out have him take a look.  They're really just
an annoying blemish although if they develop where tack will
rub it can be a problem.
