The reason it is rubbed is the horse is itchy under it's tail as well as up there. I prevent this by slathering petroleum jelly under the dock and around the area the dock rests against and the tail head. A horse will raise it's tail as it walks and the mosquitoes dive in there for blood.This is one area that doesn't get sprayed and I won't anyway but the pet. jelly works well.
