This time of the year our horses get all kinds of reactions from allergies and bites, sometimes they start rubbing their tails so hard that they make them raw. A little trick is to rub Listerine on the top of the tail. This will help to take the itch out and also work as a bug repellent. These is a cheap easy way to keep the bugs off and heal up the tail. Comment and keep us posted if you have used this trick!
