When Chloe came to us in Nov she stamped her feet (was warned about this) and vet gave her the mite injection to help (it didn't) as it was mud fever. Anyhoo, she stopped stamping in her box - but the mud fever took a hold and was awful (touch wood it is a little better atm) but she's started stamping again. Might this mean that the scabs are getting better and drying up? Do you think it could be a bit like in humans - when we were kids and grazed our knees, (well my mum used to tell me this) that when it was getting better it itched?! I really hope so, as she was doing it in the paddock today as well. Am a bit at my whits end with the wretched mud fever - poor girl has had a horrid winter with it and as a result is VERY difficult to attend to regarding her lower legs now.
