Question Weird Little Lumps

My horses get little lumps in the summer all over on there necks and sometimes on their belly area. They're only like an inch or two big and they are only there for like 4 or 5 days, but they're really annoying and it scares me because I don't know what they are...

Sounds like bug/fly bites. Do you fly spray them? What do you use?

Sounds like bug bites or hives. You can give your horses Benadryl if they are bothering them. You can find the correct dosage for your horses size on google.

Probably bug bites. You should try an aerosol fly spray for cattle. Its really strong.
