Hi again, So if Ellie should have lice or mites, would I be able to see them? I have not noticed anything on her - what would I look for if she did have lice or mites ? Thanks again!

If your horse has lice, you should definitely be able to see them. They are easiest to see on top of the withers or at the base of the mane. If you part the hair & look very closely, they almost look like the light yellow bot eggs that you see on horses legs....except they'll be moving!


I'm not sure about Mites, and if you can see them with the naked eye.
