    You’ve got a bad case of mites there.
    From medicine cabinet 2020:
    Ivomec/Ivermectin injectable- Used for mites, extreme cases.
    1 cc per 40 lbs- SQ.
    Mites signs, scabby legs, ankles, scrotum's, udders are common area's.
    Lameness can be seen with severe cases.

    Or Ivermectin pour on- blue liquid-treats mites/lice.
    1 cc per 22 lbs along the topline. Repeat in 2 weeks
    Also, remove the scabs and apply Nustock on the effected areas every 3 days.

    Yes, that's the one.
    If you can get the injectable that would get rid of it faster.
    Only treat the one with symptoms, but check everyone else thoroughly.
    Maybe he can be seperated while he’s got it. If you can clean his bedding out, that will help too.

    You’re welcome! It is such a nuisance to get, I had 2 last year that got it bad. At least I can pass on what I learned.
    Good thing you had everything on hand!
