During his childhood, Talmage had an accident with a gun, permanently injuring his right hand; as a result, he painted with his left hand and was exempt from active service in the First World War. He became a war artist on the Western Front in France.

From the War Museum's website:

Veterinary units and over seven thousand horses sailed with Canada's First Contingent to England in October 1914. At its greatest strength, the Canadian Corps had more than 23,500 horses. Most of English artist Algernon Talmage's paintings were based on time spent near Quéant, on the Hindenburg Line, in 1918.

And it is highly contagious, between animals and between animals and humans.


I imagine poor nutrition contributes, by weakening the animal's immune system, but mange is caused by microscopic mites. Sulfur kills the mites. Nowadays we have other treatments.

i knew dogs got mange. there was a dog in my neighborhood that had mange. his owner put motor oil on him thinking that would cure it. (it doesn't)
i did a little research, it is caused by poor nutrition. it is not contagious, so healthy dogs aren't bothered by it. you feed the animal out of it. so what does the sulfur do? poor horses!
