Oh man, I hate those stupid flying ants. I was terrorized by all kinds of ants as a child. I swear they sought me out intentionally.

grrrrrr.........bugs. i tried riding the other day and I couldnt get much accomplished. After spraying what seems like a full bottle of spray April was still being eaten alive... After riding I cool her down and then let her roll, and then rinse her off and hand graze her in the yard (her turnout pen is pretty bare) she wanted nothing with eating grass and wanted the barn.

Im not used to them being soo thick and ready to suck blood. The horse flys are huge too this year... sorry for my rant, i am just annoyed and I feel bad for my girl. Even with a fly sheet and mask on they get her legs, belly, and neck.

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

I was riding and talking to my friend at the same time... rode into a cloud of those flying ants and ended up swallowing a bunch of them.
That was about 20 yrs ago, I still hate them after all these years. lol
