Lice? What to do?
My mare has lice...
I was loking her over, because I thought she had bite marks on her, but it turns out they're rub marks where she's so itchy tht she's rubbed her hair out... A closer look revealed the tiny buggers to me... Urgh...
I hate lice... I've never dealt with them on a horse, though... My uncle used to tell me that he put kerosene on his old gelding when he got lice, but wouldn't that burn!?
Anyway, my mare has the little buggers all over her. So far, my gelding is fine... no lice... but I don't know about the other horses.
I'm going to try to find a shampoo to bathe my mare and gelding in that will get rid of the lice... but for the other horses I'm going to have to find some sort of powder...
What can I look for that gets rid of lice in horses? I need help!!!
