Question about bare skin on legs
« on: April 06, 2014, 08:27:54 pm »
We've just picked up a lamb in the field that was scouring and looked a little poorly.  We've brought her in, but noticed that she has lost the wool for about an inch from all four legs just above her feet.  The skin doesn't look sire or inflamed.  Has anybody seen anything like this before?  Is it likely to just be caused by standing in wet grass?

Oooh weird, we've got the same in our nearly yearlings, loss on ears and face too. Would be very pleased to know what/why. Thought it was scald related after the wet winter when we saw the feet but doesn't explain the other areas. Skin very dry too.
