just wondering about something...
took maddie in from the field last night and whilst grooming her..noticed her legs had lots of little winged fly-type things on them..very much like corn lice[i think they have lots of different names..thunderbugs is one i think]
the were just on her legs not on her body, and when she moved they dissappeared[flew away i imagine]
i put on some flyspray and it think this may have done the job.
just wondering if anyone has this problem too? also if it can cause anything [but worried cause she has big cut below her fetlock and dont want them infecting it]
