eeeeeehhh, I started itching and tingling just when I read the title. One of our ponies got lice/mites/whatever, and it was a nightmare (no so much the getting rid of them, just him having them at all). I couldn't hardly walk past him without them getting on me, my mom and sister didn't have a problem, they could lead him and pet him and treat him. I have realllyy long hair, and I am fine with bugs and spiders and stuff, but I HATE lice-type things, and would get on me so fast. Ugh, I'm glad that's over.
Sorry, not very helpful, just reminiscing :).
