My horse also gets HUGE welts. My vet said it was an allergic reaction to the bugs and suggested a fly sheet, and also could use Benadryl and just multiply the dose to equal your horse’s weight – though I haven’t actually tried that.

My horse got them mostly underneath his belly so I purchased a fly sheet that wrapped underneath him and also had a neck cover. It helped a lot and he didn’t get any bites like that after. - handmade custom wood-burned brushes, stall signs, & portraits, etched glasses, and custom stuffed ponies
