Lice? -_-

So pretty sure my horse as got live. Actually we are sure, we've seen them. He has knits in his mane and we've seen live bugs. He doesnt bath but he's going to have to suck it up because I don't want it spreading around the barn. I have a tea tree oil based shampoo for sensitive skin I bought at a tack sale, is there anything else that might be a little more effective? Something stronger maybe?

You should be able to get an anti-lice treatment from your tack shop.

The cheapest way I found was childrens lice shampoo that had tea tree oil in (lather in with fingers or use lice comb, it not ony killed all lice it made her coat go lovely and soft. Repeated every four daysx21 to kill baby and eggs. Make sure you bleach all grooming equipment, and clean yor tack. Dettol anticeptic has been used at our stables too which has been effetive but dries the coat slightly so leave a good conditioner on. I used lots of expensive stuff and most of them are useless
Good luck

When my mare had a bad case of lice we just used Sevin-Dust. Killed those things practically instantly.

Dri-kill is definitely the most effective thing I've tried! It doesn't take long, but you have to do two treatments about 2-3 weeks apart to ensure you get the young-in's who haven't hatched yet. Also, make sure you wear gloves and masks if you do use it! If you know whether or not it is biting lice or sucking lice, deworming will work on biting lice also!

Well he was dewormed not long ago. SO I imagine its the other kind :P Thanks so much though, I was holding off on the dri kill just waiting for an opinion but now I can treat him right away. All his equiptment has already been treated ( his saddle pads, polos , halters, halter fuzzies, ect) Now its his turn ha ha and his current halter :)
