Fungal skin conditions with cushings

Alannah Delahunty-Pike

Wondering if people have battled fungal skin conditions (rain rot) with cushings horses? My 26 yo mare had a bad case on her back last fall. Small patches crop up now and again. Any suggestions on best ways to get it under control? Thanks!

Tight PPID control is the best way to solve this problem, plus balanced nutrition with adequate protein.  Also consider clipping and using a blanket.
