Ok so I posted some pictures of my handsome cremello yearling after he rolled after having a bath, he then ran away and came back with lots of ticks and some nasty bites from the wild ponies he had eloped with....

AND NOW WARTS. I had the vet out to check him when I first got him back and he was fine. It has been a couple of weeks and now he has got about 3 or 4 small warts on his lip.

The problems seem never ending! He was meant to be going to somebody on loan but I doubt they will want him now, and it would be unfair to expect them to be able to keep him as they have other horses that he could infect. Before he was up for loan he was advertised for sale and I had somebody interested, and I know they wouldnt want to take him now as they wanted to show him this year and also have other show horses.
I'm moving house where I will have no grazing in under a month!
What the hell am I going to do with him?

:(

When I was a girl back in the Dark Ages they used to tie them with cotton thread or paint with nail varnish (not near the eyes though)

Probably more effective treatments available now.

Get the vet out don't use home medicine!! It makes it less effective.

My mare had one, one day it fell off and never came back.
