This is horrifying. Ticks FREAK me out. They're so hard and their little legs wiggling UGHHHH. I'm not usually such a girl about this kind of stuff, but beetles and ticks and spiders just scare the crap out of me. Out of all of them, ticks are the worst for me. If I had seen my horse covered in hundreds of them, I probably would have screamed, started balling then passed out.
I worked in a dog grooming salon, and any time a dog came in with ticks I had to have one of the other girls get them. :( It's embarrassing! Especially freaks me out if I feel one before I see it. Giving me the willies just typing this.
I hope your boy gets better!
If you are going to teach a horse something and have a good relationship, you don't make him learn it - you let him learn it.
