Sweet Itch is a condition caused by an allergic reaction to the bite of Culicoides midges, usually resulting in lesions on the topline, mane, tail and abdomen. Hypersensitive horses and ponies can cause further damage by rubbing the irritated areas.

Full Neck is not removable.

*Based on several clinical studies conducted in Europe and the US, the alternating black and white stripes have been proven to discourage flies, protecting zebras from the irritation and harmful effects of biting insects. To be effective, the pattern has to be a true zebra pattern, not a fashion pattern. Beware of imitations.
