Hey, this ccouldd be whhat we call sweet-itch,this is where the horse is allergic to the saliva on flies (as daft as it sounds) we have a shetland pony tha thas this, he has to be stalled during the hotter months in the day and itches himself to the point where he willdraw bloody, he is also rugged up with a mesh fly sheet which helps a little, also try using vaseline. You can get this diagnosed from the vet. Its nothing to worry about, and wont cause anything serious, just a really itchy, scratchy horse!!!
