Rainscald

We are not amused with scab removal.

Nibbles is not amused with her current state of affairs. She has a few spots of rainscald on her loin/hindquarters plus a little bit on her back legs. This past weekend was windy but warmer (50’s!) so she was spot bathed using iodine then slathered in diaper ointment. It’s the best stuff I’ve found for rain rot and “scratches.”

photo 1 (1)The weather is dipping back into the 20’s this week so the trend of no work for Nibbles continues. Luckily, I’ve noticed we are getting more and more daylight so I’m hoping I’ll soon be able to take advantage of the seldom warm up (the woes of having no indoor or lit riding area).
