The cows had it a while ago, they got rid of it... but it was left on the fence line, Breeze always stuck her head over the fence and stuff. I am trying teatree oil for her, if that doesn't work, I will try apple cyder vinegar or toothpaste! That is what the BO said to try...
I also washed all my brushes in bleach, all my buckets, farm jacket, gloves, halters and lead ropes...
I am still needing to wash my leather halter, but don't know how, will minks oil help? And my bareback pad, which I don't think I need to wash, because it never came in contact with her affected areas (the face) but I am washing it anyways, which I will hand wash.
