Walkin typed what I wasn't feeling patient enough to type at the time.
Same with my pony, I double dosed her last spring and summer and it made a world of difference. Same as Walkin I wasn't quit brave enough to double dose 2 wks apart. Think I went for 3 weeks. Last summer was the first in ages where she didn't rub her belly raw. This season I will be a little more aggressive with treating because she took it with no problems.
It started with an odd little sore on her face and then her neck that never would heal except in the dead of winter. I tried everything else, bathing, topicals, tons of fly sprays. Nothing else worked. The double dosing with ivermectin did. None of my other horses have ever been bothered like that.
