Rubbing tail out

My 4 year old is rubbing her tail out really bad...

She is up to date on her worming...
Her tail is clean..

Should I try some conditioner on it???

Conditioner might help. Or coconut oil. Or mtg. You might try feeding corn oil or flaxseed. Be careful with that last piece of advice though, if she is an easy keeper or overweight, you don't want to be adding more to her diet. Intense and frequent grooming will also help.

Maybe it's sweet itch. Make sure she's stabled at dawn and dusk when the midges are most active and use a fly sheet and fly spray other than that maybe something to soothe the itch like aloe vera

She has a fly sheet & fly mask on. She is groomed daily.

Im going to put her on some Omega 3's and see if that helps!
