Advice please :)

Hi guys!

Hope you and all the horsies are well :)

Im having problems with my  miniture shetland mare! Shes just turned 3 is a totally changed pony, she used to stand for hurs being groomed and things now wont stand bites trys to kick etc. She is also always itching so checked for lice and sweet itch etc and nothing de loused her just in case! She has also noticed to have changed in the field one sec she will be eating then the next bucking kicking squealing and charging through the other horses!

 

Anyone got any ideas what it could be bothering her?

Well it does sound like she's being bitten by something - have you tried a fly rug on her? Or is she like most shetties and rips them to shreds lol ?!!

also since shes constantly itching her mane someone said to cut her mane off then i would manage to treat the itch fully! But she has a lovely mane and i would be scared it wouldnt grow back as long!

If you don't get fixed up with a rug here is one that isn't too expensive and it has a neck cover.

Hope the rug thing solves your problem.
