    My mare has fungus covering her legs, my trainer told me to scrub her legs until they were raw to get the roots of the fungus off. We use medicated shampoo and fungus cream given to us by the vet, but its still spreading. Her turnout is in the late morning, so her feet don’t get to wet from the dew. We have had her feet wrapped, but nothing is really working, the fungus monster just keeps coming back, we have tried everything sold in stores.

    what shampoo are you using? is it the blue scrub?
    i would think scrubbing until raw would only help the fungus, as well as keeping her wrapped. it’s not allowing her legs to breathe…what does the vet thing it is? can you post pictures? is it scabbing up after you scrub it? have you tried scrubbing and then covering in desitin?

    her fungus has finally cleared (for now at least) i dont have any pics from it at its worst , but i found the Fungasol line from absobine really helped. And please dont judge but this really worked and my horse didnt mind it, tide powder. You just scrub it on, not to hard and the fungus falls off, i have also learned if you catch it imeadiately you will have a better chance at controlling it. Please dont judge the tide powder really did work, if you dont want to try that fungasol from absobine works too. Hope this helps anyone who is struggling

    No judgement from me, I know old trainers that have used dish detergent to sweat a joint, usually stifles. It works ; )

    Glad to hear the mare is better!

    Sure there's right and wrong but mostly there's just a whole lotta different.
