Abrasions from the bottom and sides. If they swim a lot they'll form callus' but they are a pain at the beginning of the season. Pool shoes will help prevent them. I assume you are talking about the tips of the toes and/or heels and finger tips.


The pool has either a bad, rough plaster finish possibly caused by a bad acid wash or bad prolonged water chemistry. If there has been no adjustment to the pH or alkalinity of the water then there salt stalagmites growing onto the plaster. If the plaster has been acid washed sometime in the past it was left rough by the acid. The job should have been completed by power sanding the plaster smooth. If this is a public or simi-public pool contact your local health athaurities. This is not a safe pool!! If a private pool stop using it until the problem has been corrected. If the sanitizer levels are not within parameters you can run the risk of an infection.

Can horses catch anything that causes blisters by being touched by a person?

There are several infectious diseases horses can get that would result in blisters. In the United States, the most commonly seen disease is vesicular stomatitis, a viral disease that causes blisters of the oral cavity and lameness. However, simply being touched by a human (or anything else) would not cause the blisters - they are a product of the infection process with this pathogen and would develop regardless of the absence or presence of human contact. The only thing I can think of that could cause a horse to break out in bumps or blisters after being touched by a human would be an allergic reaction to an allergen present on the human. This is similar to what humans experience with poison ivy - the rash and bumps spread due to the oil being spread across the skin through scratching, and humans sensitive to poison ivy oil can get the poison ivy rash after petting a dog that has run through poison ivy.
