Today I found out my cob has heel/feather mites,BUT its ONLY on the one foot.
Any ideas how to get rid of them? Someone suggested pig oil?? and I should cut the feather off,but my horse is not having any of it. Have cleaned the area with hibiscrub,all clean now but need to treat those pesky mites,any ideas????
Thanks.

Second pig oil & sulphur! Tried loads of other things that didnt work.. I think theresa_F on here has a very good fact sheet giving you all the info you need on it. :)
