That's great! It's really amazing how fast it can get dirty up there.

She may just have dry skin. You could try TMG ( I think thats the name) Oil in her tail. We use it on two horses at the barn I ride at and it helped allot. They stopped rubbing and have nice healthy looking tails.

she may just have sweet itch, try some switch (from your vet) and dermatitiis cream along with a flyrug :) see if that helps :p

If you do ALL of the above, and she is clean and well-oiled, and she is still rubbing her tail PAST her heat, it's probably worms. Don't be convinced that she is worm free bc of your drug rotation. Please read:
