Put a black towel/t-shirt on their back for 5 mins when standing in the sun, you'll see them on the shirt when you take it off.
Need to know if they are chewing or biting lice, chewing would cause the white dander.
Chewing lice are nasty yellow/white things with orange heads.
Fly spray with pymitherin (sp) sprayed all over every other day and brushed in, focused on the withers/back/rump for three weeks, will take care of them. She can also buy it in concentrated form, mix with water and spray, follow the directions closely and spot test first.
For the biting ones worm with ivermectrin and do the same spray thing. Haven't had those though.
Spray tack/brushes/etc with windex. The ammonia will kill them quickly and it evaporates so no lasting residue.
Search out Mod Cherie's posts, she suggests dosing with vitamin A, I'd do that too.
She has the dosage on a recent thread...
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
