Black-Jack, also known as ‘Jacky’…. Of course our Jack needs the basics as food, water and hoof care, vetcosts etc. But Jacky needs also a lot of skin care. He is a perfect victim for the flies in spring and summer. Black-Jack reaaaally suffers a lot from that. He scratches all his hair away and scratches himself so badly that he gets wounds all over his body and especially on his belly and between his leggs, where the flies are ‘free’ to eat him. They go in and make nasty wounds. They love him. Very sad. He needs a very consequent anti-fly treatment with sprays. Natural treatments, water showers every day in summer and if he has wounds aluminium-spray (which makes a little layer of aluminium) so the flies cannot go in anymore. He also has a very sensitive system and his lymphs get swollen very easily. That is why also he gets very swollen ankles with the very hot weather and the cold showers are very important to him. For his skin and his feet.
