Not many ticks around those parts, maybe because we never really get TOO hot, and we're frozen 8 months out of the year, or close to at least.
I've always used Tick preventative on my dogs, but never had to worry about them on horses or even myself. This was the first time I was bit by a tick myself, and I was pretty freaked out to be honest...
