Too funny Stan! Between Foxhunters stories and your jokes Im up way too late but well worth it.

Got to the barn this morning to ride and have a trainng session, brushed Kes only to find some 100 or so bumps down her withers to her back. They irritated her enough I couldnt even brush her. So no riding for me today. I lunged then hosed her off, then applied lots of vetrycin. Went back this evening and applied more. Theres just always something, it seems!

I sympathize with you It seems we have horses that attract issues like flies to the honey pot Any ideas what has caused the lumps.

Our tick season starts in a few weeks. Last year Stella had a reaction to ticks which stoped me riding for quite some time. This year she is staying on our property. Last year she was grazing on a friends when hit by the ticks. Fingers crossed.

But Stella is my horse warts and all

The only thing I can think of that caused it was the surcingle used to long line her in the heat yesterday. Maybe she sweated and had a reaction to the surcingle? I've been out of town while my trainer worked her.

Ticks sound scary, we don't get many here thankgoodness but I have seen some spiders recently that could carry off a small dog.

I don't own any horses, but am considering leasing after a season or two of lessons.
That's about what I'm doing too, Bones. I'm also 57 and want to maybe try leasing a horse after another year or so of lessons.

Here in the NYC area, the temp has gone down 10 degrees & we have less humidity for a while. Maybe I'll have a nice day for my first horse show on Sunday. Lately, lessons have been like training for survival in extreme heat.

Dancer spooked at a killer crow ambush on Sunday and dumped me. No injuries, just one sore spot so it must be a good luck sign for the show. She's such a funny old girl - looked at me like "hey, why are you down there?" afterwards. As if she didn't know.

Texasgal. When I run out and buy treats for Stella I also buy for Kate as well. I think I am more attached to my wifes horse than she is. Or has she trained me to feel guilty if I don't include her horse when I go shopping for Stella. I enjoyed the photos the horses look great.

Stan .. lol. I didn't mean to imply that the treats weren't for Badger too .. I just think it's funny that he's going out and buying horse stuff because HE has a horse .. hehehehe.

I should have done this years ago....
