Looks like hives? Perhaps you should try an immune-system supplement(:

Maybe this is what my mare had too. Hmm... In AR!?
I did worm her around then too. Weird! Poor girls!

The wormer I amusing for Honey has Ivermectin as the main/only ingredient. So will still go ahead and use it with the full dose and hopefully that will rule that out/fix the issue!

It is recommended that to treat Neck thread worms, you need to double dose ivermectin. It doesnt go by tubes but by weight. So give twice the horses calculated dosage for weight in ivermectin all at one time.

Also, horses that are infected with them will have a die off stage the few days to week right after dosing and it will flair up and be really itchy. Usually they look motheaten when they have this. Im not sure that is what this is but it wont hurt a normal horse to be double dosed with ivermectin and see how they respond to it.

Sorry, I never replied until now.
Thank you everyone for the great advice. I believe it was Onchocerca as suggested as I gave Honey a good dose of Ivermectin wormer and the bumps have disappeared!

Will definitely remember this if I notice it again!!
