For those natural horse junkies like myself, I was wondering if anyone had any natural remedies for spring allergies and bugs? Thanks in advance. Happy riding ! 🌸

My mom's quarter horse has allergies and twice a year one of his eyes swells shut. We soak a tea bag really well in lukewarm, room temperature ish water and hold it on his eye for about 20 minutes, probably 2-3 times a day. Sounds crazy, but it works!
Tea tree oil is really good for repelling insects. A small amount of garlic fed also helps keep bugs away.
