At my current barn, there are a ton of ticks.
What is the best way to remove ticks?
When I try to pull the ticks that are in her mane with tweezers, she flips out and rears up..

My horses live on a pasture and we have had ticks pretty bad this year, I found a small tick on my filly's face, and we have had Lyme and other tick bore illnesses on our property before we wanted to get it out quickly, we held straight peppermint oil over it and it did not come out right a way, but as we were wiping it off your skin so it did not irritated it, the tick just came straight out and was dead, I hope that maybe this helped
