Oh, and my mare had a tennis ball (diameter) sized bite on her earlier this week and it was gone 2 days later as well...hers never really got 'hard' was just 'poofy' and a little ouchy, and itchy...she liked when I tickled it, and would get that "ahh that's the spot!" lip, but if I put much real pressure on it, she would flick her tail and move her hip away. It was on her barrel, behind her last ribs. I swear the small bugs are worse that the big bugs around here!!!
