    I'm not a horsey person but today I saved the life of a horse I found which was neglected and starving in the snow. It had these little bug things in its hair some of which have transferred themselves to my hair.

    What are they? And how do I rid myself of them?

    Might be fleas or ticks... Go to your vets or doctors.

    Ah well, at least I'll avoid the disappointment of exam results and it'll be easier for me to lose weight.

    Google ticks...if its these then go immediately to a doctors so they can be properly removed because they can carry disease (Lyme) however its unlikely to be these in such a large quantaty...likely to be fleas but obvs I can't say without seeing...:/

    It's all okay now, I brushed them out and washed my hair twice and they're all gone.

    And the horse? Because if the bugs are latched on to the skin, they're ticks and you need to get them removed from the horse (they can carry tick-bourne infections or could even be paralysis ticks, although this is unlikely). Either way, fleas or ticks, the horse needs treatment for it, along with a check-up...

    It's not my horse, I just found it and took it from the field and called the vets. They'll be taking care of it.
