Mites are often an ongoing problem, in draft breeds. This especially if you have brought your horse in from another country or area. We always treat our Gypsies for mites, immediately they arrive. Infestation can be transmitted to other horses, so all horses, bedding etc. must be treated and regularly.

ALL draft breeds are prone to scratches and CPL. You can read about here..

What do you treat bedding & etc. with?
I know people use frontline and other stuff on the horse, but what do you put on the ground to kill the little buggers?

We like sevin dust. It's meant for roses but works well on just about everything, including fleas. Safe around pets too.
