Welcome to the Kenzie party, to those of you who just joined us! Sorry for any homework delays ;) I have that problem too. lol

With the garlic I'm feeding her (1 1/2 tsp of fresh chopped garlic daily) and what SWAT I can slap onto her when she isn't paying attention, plus the giant amount of fly spray that I've been dousing her in, I've been able to manage the flies pretty well. I've only seen one or two on her in the past few days, and they're usually gasping for air as they die >:)

I thought fresh garlic caused anemia in horses?

Garlic *can* cause anemia - it's kind of a double edged sword as far as pros/cons of using it for things it can help with (ie fly control) because it can cause bigger issues. Raw/fresh garlic vs. prepared garlic products is more likely to cause issues, but it is not a "guaranteed to cause" sort of thing, just that it is one of hte possible risks if the use is not managed properly.

I actually didn't know about that. Where would I get prepared garlic, besides in the insanely expensive tubs (where I'm pretty sure I'd just be paying for the name) at the feed store? The last thing she needs is anemia O_o

YIPPEEE!

I'm right there with you...I'm going to miss this little gal but I know she's going to get plenty attention from you guys and more care/training than I'm able to give her! I can hardly sleep at night thinking about next Saturday xD

Has BO contacted you yet?

Nope, haven't heard from her yet.

Wait, is your area code 410? I got a call from a 410 number the other day, but the call went dead when I hit accept. I hope that wasn't her
