Not sure if anyone can help but my companion pony is a coloured gypsy cob with heavy feathers.
I've only had him a few months & he is from the local sanctuary. He is always scratching his bum & legs on the fencing & always seems quite an itchy pony- I thought he may be scratching because he was hot as he is constantly moulting & still has a biggish coat.
Today he came in & he has rubbed big sore patches on his hind legs, so I am wondering if he has mange or something else. Dont think it is sweetitch as he doesnt rub his mane. Or could it be?... I cant find signs of any lice or mites etc on him. My other horse is fine & not itchy at all.
Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? Do I get the vet up for a skin scraping or what should I do?
Thanks so much!
