Re: [RC] Ticks and Horses - Glenda R. Snodgrass

a week or simply not worry too much about it?  Do you
use any kind of tick repellent at all and if so what
do you use?

I learned that Show Sheen sprayed on the tail really keeps ticks off!  
Apparently it makes the tail hair so slickery they can't climb up it. :)  
I had one horse that reacted very badly to tick bites, so in the summer I
sprayed Show Sheen on his legs and tail every 3-4 days, and rub it on his
face and neck a bit, and it really helped him out a lot.

I don't think this qualifies as a "natural"  preventive but it made me
feel much better than putting poison on his skin all the time.
