    With spring comes the mosquitoes as the days warm. One way to tell if they are out is the bushy hairs at the top of the tail. This is often mistaken for sweet itch or worms. It is usually caused by mosquitoes. As a horse moves he lifts his tail and the mosguitoes converge on the delicate skin on the underside which makes him itchy. He will rub against something trying to get relief. Thus the bushy tail hairs. The mosquitoes may also go after the thinner hairs at the top of the tail. An inexpensive, effective remedy is to slather petroleum jelly on the underside of the tail and around the anus and vagina, even some in the bushy hair. With a mare, also slather it underneath around her teats as itchy teats will get her tail rubbing. The black flies, if you have them, or gnats, feast under there.

    I have changed Shoop's Mollichop chaff to Healthy Hooves now. She has been on it for about 2 weeks and already her skin is less dry, her coat is silkier and I swear her tail has grown. I think taking care of the hooves, washing her tail and using tail builder and not brushing it is the way forward. I will keep adding pics every week or so as I've found that alot of tail growing threads only really have the before pics.
