is this what bot flies do????
So shadow had a sore on his nose, between his cheek bone and muzzle. I didnt think much of it at first, but the next day he had another one the size of a quarter about 2 or 3 inches away from the first one. I pulled the scabs off and cleaned it well, but I noticed another lump on his neck that was kind of solid a few days ago and that burst this morning. I've seen bot eggs before, but never what they do next season. I just got shadow in febuary so im guessing he had a problem last summer... if that is the problem. He doesnt wear a halter in the pasture, theres no wooden fences to rub on and he's alone right now in the pasture.... anyone have any ideas on what else this could be (PLEASE, this is so gross! Lol ) or if it really does sound like bot flies... and if so what can I do to make sure they don't get to his intestines and stomach and make things worse?? ( I gave him zimectrin about 2 months ago, and strongid 2 weeks ago)
