    I live in Florida and I see this every year . It is an allergy to "noseeums" . They are a little biting insect that almost looks like a tiny flea and they are bad in the summer time.

    Ditto! I was just going to post, before I read the post above, if you had tried fly spray on her belly. My gelding gets a milder version of this in the summer from the bugs and if I apply fly spray on his belly every 2-3 days it heals up.

    Cheap fix too!

    I was also going to post this. Use a good fly repellant and put some Bickmore Gall Salve on the sore places to heal them up. Should fix it right up.

    And now I see that sorry about that! Lack of sleep and all.

    It sounds like some people have figured out what it is.. hopefully their advice works for your lease horse!
