Warts can be anywhere just like on humans. Hairy warts I think are hoof related


My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Is everyone referring to "warts" as ringworm? Warts are hoof related...
Do you mean hairy wart, a.k.a. digital dermatitis? Yes, that is on the hoof. Warts are viral and can appear anywhere. Ringworm is a fungus.

No - we are referring to warts. They can come up any place on their body - mostly on the front end. I believe you are referring to hairy heel warts - mostly a dairy problem.
There are numerous "strains' of warts and that is why the vaccine is so in-effective. Like the Pinkeye vaccines.
