Good afternoon all. I board my 3 horses at a stable and just found out that two different horses have "warts". Everything I read says this is contagious and really nothing you can do but let it run it's course. One of the ponies has them very bad in his ears...he is stabled right next to my daughters pony...they can touch each other over the fence. His look terrible, the vet has cut them out twice now, but they keep coming back and look like cauliflowers...and very painful for him..you cannot touch his ears. The second is a new mare to the farm. The new owner was told that she just had allergies and her skin stays very broke out...mosquitoes and flies really break her out, but the stable owner said she looked closely at her and she has hundreds of little warts all over her around her shoulder and neck area....this is also very alarming to me. This particular mare is not around other horses, but we do occasionally trail ride together with her...any advice any one has would be greatly appreciated, as luckily all three of my horses have not skin issues or coat issues (many other issues LOL), but I really don't want to start having that problem too....thanks, Kim

I was told by an old timer cowboy to mix pine tar and Iodine and put on the warts. I had a mare that had them for months as I was just going to let it run it's course, but they wouldn't go away so I finally went and bought a can of pine tar. They cleared right up, I never had to actually put the pine tar on her! I'm sure just a fluke but I found it funny. I think it had more to do with her getting them skinned up during a fall we had, susposedly scratching them activates the immune system in the area and gets it to attack the warts. Here is a site where they are discussing it

Edited to add: Oops, I re-read and realised it wasn't your horses that have it! Sorry! keep your horses well wormed, that is susposed to help a lot. Stress increases their susceptibility to the virus so a healthy happy horse should be at a much lower risk of developing them. Obviously make sure any grooming tools are disinfected if they get used on the infected horses!

I use equstim and inject it as stated on the bottle, I think it is every 3 days for as long as needed.

About 15 years ago my paint stallion that I was showing at halter got warts on his nose. A friend told me to use Farnams WartAway Ointment, I had my doubts but within 2 weeks they were gone with no blistering or discoloration. Not sure if it is still on the market, never had the problem again, "knock on wood".

Are they sure they are warts? I had a stud that we thought had a wart(in his ear big and cauliflower like) had it removed twice but it continued to grow back and it was really a sarcoid. Sarcoids look a lot like warts but are not contagious

turns out the gelding had aural plaques and the mare has some type of infectious warts on her skin...the kind that you can only catch if your immune system is low. I've told my daughter to not let her pony touch these other two horses and to never share tack or grooming supplies...I hope that is enough! Thanks for everyone's input.

I know sales can be such a pain...we live on the southeast side of town off of SE 52nd Street...we board our horses at a little stable in Candler (just near lake weir). Small little farm, my daughter is just getting into dressage, hunter/jumper and we're just having fun. My mare is 71 days preggo as of today....yippee...

I used to live near there, off of 80th ST. I had a farm that is now a subdivision called Legendary Trails. I am now in north west Ocala and could not be happier everything up here is way convenient. I am close to everything and there are many new things going up! Going to Sky tonight!
