We have a paint gelding that gets hives then sores all over his chest and barrel. He is apparently allergic to the bug bites, scratches himself with whatever he can ie... fence, barn, limbs,etc.. he will make a sore and then that sometimes becomes infected. We have to keep fly spray on him, but that doesn't help that much. And then give him antibotic when the sores get bad. Have given steroids to help with the inflamation. He was worse as a younger horse, he is now about 30 and last summer was not bad for him, I have hopes that this summer will be even better.
