Beautiful fall day and a ride around the property.
Cutest pony ears ever!
|Scratches is an odd name for a form of dermatitis often occurring on the fetlocks. It is|
caused by a bacteria that can infect stressed skin of the foot. Similar to rain rot, the skin is
exposed to wet and muddy conditions and can cause microscopic cracks whereby
infection can take hold. The bacteria is naturally occurring in the environment and thrives
in moist conditions where it can take hold on the lower legs of our equine pals.
