Didn't know where else to ask this :/ sorry if this is the wrong section...
1) Okay, the snow is melting and there's only a trace left which means the bugs are coming back. I went out back to my barn and gave Carly a flake of hay. In the stall with Carly a bee was flying around. My goat saw it and slowly started to back up. My horse then saw it and threw her head back, to get it away. It flew to me and I started whacking at it. I hit it! I then ran out of the barn and across my field, terrified. I slowly came back and saw two bees outside of my barn... I don't think there's a nest... yet... But, you know those fly nets that you hang in the barn to attract the flies and make them stick to it? Does that also attract bees? How do I get them to leave!? I'm terrified of bees.
2) It's warm outside. As I said earlier, there's only a trace of snow left. For the first time in awhile ( winter :/ ) the sun is now out! I feel bad leaving Carly locked in her stall but it's very muddy outside her stall. Very. Muddy. I have her door opened but the sun doesn't reach that area :/
So, my question is... what am I to do about the mud? It's only there because all the snow melted and made water ( obviously ). I mean, I know I can't magically make it poof away, but it there something - anything - I could do? :/ stupid question, I know, I just couldn't resist asking. Around the barn it's muddy, too. Where I'll be walking, which won't help the cause. I mean, it's so muddy it'll take forever to dry up... so, what am I supposed to do..?
