Yep. I use it too. But keeping them off *completely*
is better for me. Right now I'm using a sleazy for my
filly with sweet itch. When she matures she'll get a
blanket designed for keeping the midges/gnats off.
Using the sleazy has *eliminated* her itching. The
MTG (and other products) just reduced it.
If your itchy horses also have problems on their legs
and neck/chest, that can be from a secondary parasite
whose vector is the midges. It is a worm that can
cause blindness. Best to keep the midges off entirely
if your horse(s) have a problem with them.
