Kobi’s Magic Potion

Kobi suffer’s from Sweet Itch:  an extreme allergy due to gnats.  Let me tell you, there is nothing sweet about it.

For those of you who have followed Kobi’s life with me, know that I have tried ever lotion, potion, supplement, topical, and fly sheet known to man (and some unknown for that purpose).  I use feed thru fly control, a barn misting system, and fly predators.  I make my own special mix of fly spray  and we even put mosquito eating minnows from our pond into the swamp.

We have tried horse socks, steroids and antihistamines and I’ve had vets and supplement companies tell me there is nothing left for me to try.

Until…I saw an ad for the only ‘approved’ sweet itch treatment:  Killitch, and since I’m so cheap and always looking for a way to get free shipping, I needed to buy $15 more of items, so I got Defy the Fly leg bands too.

Here is what Kobi looked like on day 1:

He had those small hairless spots all over his neck, face, chest, front and back legs, and yes, even on his sheath.  The consumed both sides of his body.  Pretty much the only thing without the hairless spots were from his ribs up and over his hindquarters.  Yes, it broke my heart.

I used the Killitch as directed:  2x a day for a week, 1x a day for a week, and am now painting his body with it only every other day.  Just look at the results:

While he still appears to have ‘spots’…it’s all black hair!

I even contacted the company in the United Kingdom and offered his before and after pictures.  I would offer this product to ANY one with a horse suffering from gnat allergies and hopefully they will use it before exhausting all other options and putting their horse through allergy hell.

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
