So yesterday I saw that Jackie had a little raw spot on her spine so I figured it was a saddle sore even though it had been a couple of days since I rode her and put some cream stuff on it that normally takes care of it. Today I went to do morning feed and her whole spine is raw, and it looks like it's oozing, and she won't let me get close to it. Does anybody know what I should do? Should I call the vet to come out?

I would call the vet out!


Home is behind, the world ahead, and there are many paths to tread.

I have no idea what that could be.
Yes, I would definitely call the vet. I hope she's all right. Sounds nasty

Though she be but little, she is fierce

Ugh the vet is all booked up for the next few days. You would think that living super close to the 2nd largest city in IN there would be more then one large animal vet around here! I need to find a new one because this also happened when Medallion had colic and all I could do was walk him. Blah. Oh and she UTD on dewormer and she's almost never in the rain so its not rain rot

lice could be the problem like Brianna was saying. Horses rub against trees, part of their stall, or fence post to itch themselves because lice are biting and sucking on her.

Ok thanks I'll check for lice and we have some equine lice dust so I might put it on her as a precaution. There's absolutely nothing she could rub her back on though in her stall and she's been in the past couple days with only today out because of the weather though.

This type of odd weather we've been having is a breeding ground for random skin funk on horses. I spray anything weird with banixx and it usually g's tfo pretty quick

the night hath been to me a more familiar face than that of man; and in her starry shade of dim and solitary loveliness i learned the language of another world.
I'm happy in summertime beneath the dark blue sky, nae thinkin in the mornin at nicht where i'm gang to lie
bothies or byres or barns, or oot amangst the hay,and if the weather does permit, I'm happy a' the day.
