As they are for most, the ticks have been horrendous this year. In the past two weeks, I have pulled off over a dozen ticks from my pony's forelock and neck. I do live in the woods and on a mountain, but I was wondering if anyone knew something I could give her to prevent them from biting.
She is currently on a large helping of minced garlic twice a day (and boy, she is stiiinky). This has always worked for her in the past, but even though I upped her helping, she's still getting the ticks.
If anyone has any ideas, that would be great. She goes out in her paddock with two friends for 8 hours a day (she will be back living outside in about a month, after I get the vet to check her for tick related diseases).
