Feed for itchy horses

Itchiness can be caused by a variety of factors; some within our control such as those affected by diet or management and some beyond our control i.e. environmental factors such as the weather or pollens. Soaps, sprays and detergents can also irritate sensitive skin and some horses do appear a lot more sensitive than others!

Itchy cobs may have underlying conditions such as mallenders or Chronic Progressive Lymphoedema (CPL) whilst native breeds are often prone to conditions such as sweet-itch.

There is little scientific evidence for 'best practise' but it is usually important to keep sugar and starch levels low and remove common irritants such as cereals and their by-products, also soya, molasses and artificial additives or bulkers.

In very severe cases, we may suggest an exclusion diet: stripping back to a single forage type, such as timothy grass or sainfoin, with some Instant Linseed to help reduce irritation. This should help the skin settle and recover before reintroducing a suitable Blend or Balancer. Traditional Brewer's Yeast is often suggested as it reportedly makes the blood taste bitter which is off-putting to biting midges.

If your horse itches themselves raw, you suspect an allergic reaction or they are becoming very agitated by their itchiness, you should always consult your vet.
