DD's new pony has rubbed a little patch off his mane (initially from the trailer before the tail guard arrived, one journey) but, last night, it looked a lot worse and I am wondering if he's scratching in the field.
When I go down, doesn't seem bothered by the flies at all, but it has been suggested it might be flies.
His old owners assure me that he doesn't suffer from sweet itch etc, they didn't use a fly rug as they found it rubbed even with protection but used Coopers every few days, they said the flies seemed to go nearer his belly if anywhere.
What do people generally do? Could it be anything else?
Have ordered both Coopers and a fly rug but will send the rug back if required, just it's a hot forecast at the weekend.
I am learning lots btw

Old question but.... fly spray or fly rug or both even?!
