More info on neck threadworms.
What is a Neck Threadworm, and Can it Hurt My Horse? – The Horse
thanks, this is really interesting and good to know!!
I'm just here to say CUTE PONY
Also agree with the possibility of neck threadworms and treating with ivermectin. Good luck!
Could still be lice although you don't see any.
Treating neck thread worm with ivermectin may cause a worse 'flare up' of symptoms but it will kill them.
An in fact, MOST horses have some amount of neck threadworms, but don't react to them.
The key with a horse that is sensitive or has a high load is to treat with ivermectin and to prevent it by covering the horse with fly protection. It's the culicoides fly, those little tiny invisible flies we usually call gnats or 'no-see-ums.'
Hi everyone! I didn't have access to my pc for some time and was not able to post any update until now, but the pony is finally better we tried to change her diet a little and it was the right thing. She was probably not tolerating her food very well, now we removed the grain and the new hair is growing perfectly and she's not scratching it anymore. I will post pictures as soon as I get rid of the flu and I can go outside again
