Condition in equidae[edit]

The sentence found in a previous version "the larvae grow in the sinuses and throat of the host animal, and are sneezed out in the spring" does not apply to equidae, the most common host of the parasite (it is found in posterior rectum, hence its name haemorrhoidalis). So I think the former contributor, seeminly having experience with reindeer, meant "in reindeer, ...". I changed then : In reindeer, the larvae grow in the sinuses and throat of the host animal, and are sneezed out in the spring.

Please, verify the fact.
