*Itchy horse*

Grace has been very itchy in the past week or so. Only in one general area and she is rubbing alot of the hair off. Last night she had a very small amount of hives in that area.

I have been keeping her locked in a field where there is nothing to rub on, but it is winter so I have to keep her in at night every so often. Last night was the first night I kept her in in about 5 days, and she rubbed a huge portion off, just about doubling the size of the rub. I don't know what to do!

Like I said, it is winter here, so I think that rules out alot of parasites...?

I have been treating the rub and around the rub with MTG for the past 3 days. I am planning on calling the vet and asking her some questions about it.

Any ideas? I really need to know what this is.

Sorry I have no clue of what this is, i'd wait for a vet to check it over. How old is the horse?

She's a 13 year old TB

Okay, so she's not even 15 yet. If she were older it may have had to be something with her age.

Has she been in contact with something different recently?
Have you added anything to her feed?
Changed your hay supplier?

It could really be something simple, but probably safe to call the vet up and ask, no harm done there

Nothing different that I can think of. Not in that area. I have been using a new hoof oil, but its not near her hoofs...
I habe been making horse treats and giving then to her, but I don't think that's it.
Same hay...

Nope, winter does not rule out parasites necessarily, nor does it rule out fungus. What part of her body is itchy?

On her "haunch" near her tail but to the side. I have wormed her recently so that shouldn't be it. I can get pictures.tonight?

That may help, pictures I mean. It could be all sorts of things.
