Re: [RC] [RC] Ticks and Horses - MtnRondi

When we used to live in an area where we had millions of ticks, I would dust the horse's mane and tail with regular dog flea & tick powder. I would try to get the powder down near the base of the hairs. Then I would lightly dust the inside of the horse blanket. I would find dead ticks later and no more big ugly oozing sores in the tail or along the base of the mane.

I have no idea if this is safe or not... maybe one of the vets can comment on that. All I know is that it worked for us and there were no side effects that I could see.

So. Calif.
