My horses have something on them, that to me look like lice, they are a pale yellow color and hard to remove, its on their chest and shoulders.I don't know if it is some kind of lice or not, I was told maybe chicken lice.I have token pics but it doesn't show up good enough to really see.Anybody know???
What you described was bot fly eggs like mentioned above. When has the horse been wormed last? You can pick them off. I like to use the "slick-n-easy" block to aid in the removal of the bot eggs. this also helps big time when your horse is sheading!!!!
I would be worming you horse right away!!! Also take a warm cloth to where the egg's are and gentley scrape them off with a bot knife. I've also found that spraying a mix of tea tree oil and water in a bottle will keep them away.....
Horses can get lice but they are little white things that crawl around. They're very obviously bugs. And they aren't hard to get rid of (a bath with dog/cat flea and tick shampoo usually does the trick). I'm agreeing with the above posts, sounds like bot eggs! They're kind of yellowish and stick to the tips of your horse's hair, usually on their legs or chest. I think it almost looks like he walked through paint or something. They aren't a big deal if you keep your horses wormed on a regular schedule, but I do find them on my horse from time to time after a trail ride.
