    I have a few questions for you, WS:
    - What kind of wormer did you use? (why I'm asking - certain wormers only kill certain kinds of worms. For butt-scratching, usually Pinworms are to blame, which some wormers will not kill.)
    - How often do you worm? (why I'm asking - when a horse is wormed too much, the horse's system can build up a resistance to the medication, so it stops working. If a horse is dewormed too little, the wormer won't kill everything.)

    If you can, you should probably replace the barbed wire with hot tape or rope. It's fairly inexpensive and it's a lot safer. There are also solar devices you can get that will power it.

    About his tail, it sounds like he either needs his sheath cleaned or he needs to be wormed. Or both.

    Ah yes, I had forgotten this point, good one Jessabel.

    My horses are kept near a pond, and we have these awful little gnats that are basically invisible but cause the horses to scratch like crazy unless we put bug spray on them, so maybe it's something like that for your horse's tail? As for the mane, the only thing I can think of is a different type of fence. Maybe you could put up a strand of hotwire along the existing fence?

    But like I said before Jesebel, I can't because there would be now where else to put them while we fixed the fence, as it splits one BIG paddock into 3 small paddocks!!
    And even if we were to find somewhere, It IS NOT OUR PROPERTY!!! Someone actually lives on the property, this is a problem for us!!!

    And JDI I found out from Mum that we change wormers every time that they need to be wormed. We have just now used AMMO, and te time before that EquiMAX

    Hope this answers you two!!
