    Hi,
    In our 4-h meeting someone told us that the polish are really bad about attracting lice.
    Is that true or a myth?
    Just wondered thought I'd ask some professionals!
    Thank you,
    Angela

    Are there breeds that are more "prone" to things like that?

    Not true here, either. But they fluffy heads could hide them for quite a while if someone wasn't checking them.
