I knew that you know what the itch is. I tried to say it in a way like, well it worked with the dog and ticks where the bugs were on/in him. Would it work with a horse where to bugs are not actaully on him?

I am sorry that I missed your post originally as my guy has this issue. I tried everything and he always wears a fly sheet with a tail protector. No washes or sprays or anything helped until I tried this supplement.

I introduced it when he was at his worst last summer, and honestly I didn't think it would do anything - but it did everything. He stopped scratching, his hair grew back and it was like nothing was wrong. It's basically an antihistamine for horses. The link is just the first place I found it on google, I can buy it for the $15 range (maybe $18 I forget) from my local tack store, so I am sure you can find it cheaper than the link below.

That deffently looks like sweat itch
Lincon ditch the itch is really good we got that last the year before last because our shetland colt was constantly itching but I don't know if they sell it Australia.

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.

My trainers horse used to have sweat itch so bad he almost didn't have a tail or mane. I can't remember the name of the ointment she used to use but it used to do wonders on him. She had to wash him everyday and apply this stuff. She also fed him garlic to keep the bugs away. He had it really bad so she at to keep at it 24/7 but it worked because before she had to sell him he had started to grow a really nice mane and tail.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P

A Haflinger at my yard used to get sweet itch sooooooo bad, but the one thing that worked really well on him was a citronella collar :) We would put fly repellant on his mane and tail, a fly rug, and then this collar before he went out for the night and it was when we started using the collar when we really noticed the difference.
