RE: Mane mites.
guess I missed this tread. Can someone please explain what all the mite talk is
about? My grey haorse for the past few summeres has rubbed his mane almost
completely off because something is driving him itchy- mad. I kept washing him
with betadine shampoo last year and it didn't help. I really couldn't see
anything when I looked closely at the mane but it was definitely a problem the
past few years. This year so far all the problem has been
way to get rid of these mites rubbing Quest wormer on the area of concern?
for the advice.
Well.. chickens.. maybe.. maybe not.
Other people I know that have the problem this year don't
have any chickens
(but every one has barn swallws) and the mite problem DOES
show up when
they migrate back here in the spring... but I didn't keep
close enough track to be sure.
All I know is that 2 or 3 years ago, all over the East
coast, horses started having this
mane mite problem. I'd never seen it before that time
2 years aso, horses at the Univ. of N.H. and Mass. had
a hugh problem year (and they
don't house chickens any where on the horse properties... at
didn't see any when I was there). That's where I got the tip
Quest will work, so I guess that's my only option
(it's less messy than smothering the
little buggers with some sort of ointment..) The gelding got
the treatment tonite.
Mare's mane is unaffected... no mites..
