Small Bugs in my Horse's Mane. Please Help!

My horse has little white-ish gray bugs in his mane area down by the scalp and on the very top of his neck. I can't get any pictures, because they're in and out of the hair. I just noticed them yesterday night when I was riding. They're super tiny and look like they have wings, so it leads me away from thinking lice. (but they could be.)

Anyway, I wanted your opinions on what they could be and what to do. If anyone has pictures, I could probably identify what they are. I sprayed his mane with some microtek and fly spray for the time being. I'm out there every day, so I can treat it regularly. I just need help on how to go about doing so.

Lice or fleas most likely. Call your vet to see what they recommend or your local feed store should be able to help with products.
