    When the my boys get all stinky durring rutt, I notice that he has lost a little bit of hair on the back of his front legs? I cleaned him up and put some balm on him. What do you folks do when they get all nasty? I also cleaned their heads and balmed it too. there is not any sores or redness just a little hair loss, Man does this job stink! but I dont want my boys getting sores, am I missing anything, or is that all I can do? Thanks folks.

    They tend to get urine scald on the back of their fronts legs from peeing on themselves so much, putting bag balm where they are losing hair helps some to prevent them from getting really bad urine scald.

    try some Vaseline to help the urine to just slide off and not touch the skin.

    Urine scarld is pretty commen this ime of year. Some bucks get it pretty severaly. I have a friend who nubian buck burns his face as well. keep the area clean and dry as much as you can. If it gets really bad put some desitin on it. It will help a lot. Sometimes i put bag balm over the top of it as well.
