    I've been using a mix of skin so soft and permethrin on my horses with a lot of good luck. My little old curly mare is so allergic to midge bits she has rubbed herself raw all over some years.
    I was able to hit the avon buy one get on free sale just right this year and got enough to last my 3 horses all bug season. I used a little more oil than I normally do and it made all the difference in the world.

    Ya, I'll have to talk to my vet about that. I think next year I'm going to start her immediately on feed-through bug repellant and take it from there. Despite how awful she is this year, it's not as bad as when I first got her. Her neck and belly and face where all completely bald and scabbed. She was left out in a sunny dry lot 24/7 with a pile of other horses and just got eaten alive. So she was better this year with bug spray and all, but the end of the summer has really taken it's toll on her >.<
    Thanks :) I'll talk to my vet about that

    Sue- what's permethrin?

    A stabilized pyrethrin - major ingredient in the long lasting insect repellants you buy. You can get it at tractor supply and mix your own. Mix it yourself and it winds up being a fraction of the cost of buying a ready made mix.

    Here is a video of Snickers scratching her belly on the ground. You can lay across her too while she does this helping her scratch her belly. Too funny.
