I had ringworm go through my closed herd a few years ago. I got to being able to spot those who were about to come out in white spots before they did so: they had raised patches like that. The hair fell out over the next few days.

As of yet no hair loss. I have never seen hornflies leave a mark ever. Maybe they are to high in number?

High in number for sure..Never seen them fly around with a independent attitude..that slick Brahman hide shows a lot.. like a horse...
