WE would like to report two unusual outbreaks of skin lesions in sheep resembling ‘strawberry footrot’. The vast majority of lesions were located above the coronet and/or on the skin between coronet and carpus/tarsus. Lesions initially presented as a crusty swelling that burst to leave a granulomatous, purulent surface that was prone to bleeding (Fig 1). Lesions were very sensitive to the touch, with some swelling of the surrounding tissue and severe lameness of the affected limb. In some sheep more than one leg was affected and some legs showed more than one lesion.
