Dry Dusty White UFO's

-deep breath- Ok, Please help settle an on-going argument I've been having with my co worker about this skin thing on my horses, please.

My findings: While brushing out the horses I noticed yucky itchy flakey white (i don't know what to call it) flakes? infestation? dandruff? in their hair. Mainly clustered in certain places. (ie: near their tail, under their pits, withers, and lower leg area. So I soap it up wash it out.. ok cool most of it is gone except for these certain areas. seems to be white flakes stuck in the hair all similar in size.. etc. Are they maybe eggs? dandruff?
Its driving me insane. So after bathing the animal.... I start feeling reeally itchy. (i know dirt can do this but bleh not all the time.)

I can take some pics tomorrow to post for a more comprehensive explanation or label as to wth it is... will do so if y'all are stumped...

Please help...
Maybe a brand of soap name? something. . . . ty
