Re: RC: Summer Itch Relief
Laura - I had very good luck this summer with Horsemen's Dream
Fung-A-Way. Was easy to use and did not have to apply all the time.
Seemed to do the job by applying in the mornings 3-4 days running, leave
off, then do again if need be. What I liked was that it made the hair
grow right back and kept the horse very comfortable. Good luck. Carol
