I noticed Vega had a tick on her the other day. It was still walking around so I got it off and killed it. Is there anything we can put on horses like we do on dogs to repel ticks?

A horse where we board had gotten Lyme's disease, so i'm just nervous that Gem or Vega might get it.

Seems like everytime I ride and when I get done buck has atleast 6-7 ticks on him and I hate tick when I get them on me I freak out people prob think I was having a heart attack cause I spaz out but all I have to do is put on a rubber glove and have to pick them off slowly but he don't get them in the pasture only when I ride him in the grass in the field.

So far this summer I have only had 4 on me! Thank god!

I saw the equi-spot. It seemed good, and the thing to get.

Has anyone tried it? Does it work?

It worked on my guys for about a week...and there wasn't a lot of rain to wash it off...

My guys are out all the time (unless there's a thunderstorm and in really cold weather) so they'd be out in the rain.

I only noticed that one tick on Vega and I haven't noticed another one on either of them.

Is there a feed through thing I could try?
