Is It Lice Or Something Else???
I was out in the pasture today with my horse, rubbing him and petting him and checking him over for any new lumps, bumps or scratches in the disguise of giving him love. Hehe. I happened to be scratching his ears and started ruffling his forelock when I noticed these little white miniature rice grain looking things all in his forelock. In all my years with horses I've never seen something like this before on them. Now, I'm not sure if they are a type of fly egg or maybe lice? This is my first spring in the south, I'm originally from up in NY so I'm not sure if with the warmer climate there are different species of flies down here or not. Has anyone else ever seen something like this on their horse before?
