Joshie you're spreading your fear again, with absence of malice. Dumas is not to worry about little Joey he is safe in the protective custody of TC Bandit, Myself, Farmpony and the rest of the carrot wranglin gang. He now rides on Sassyfras's non carrot filled belly. We don't use fly spray as not to harm Dumas little buddy. Joey will grow into a mighty horsefly, the stallion of a new monster race of horsefly's sent out from the devils herd only to pester the ponies of the posse that hound dog us. Like the flying monkeys from the Wizard of OZ, Joey and his plague of horsefly's will swoop down on the rumps of the posse's ponies biting, buzzin, and just causing a general nuisance then off to ravage the crops of the carrot.
Don't mess with Joey
As to Percy and Lulu..
