So ok I had to share this! So I pull up at the barn today and an two friends who used to be in horse club were there visiting the horses. We asked the mother if she wouldn't mind taking a look at Blaze's eye while she was there and check Shaggy's limp. Well since I hadn't been able to go to the barn in 2 days due to working ummer camp in the mornings and VBS every night I decided to check him for ticks and when I checked his ear he jerked away. I figured great he's got a tick in there again. He did. Well we were looking down in there to make sure we got the whole tick out and we saw this really big white thing down further in his ear. It was a huge and I mean huge tick!!! This thing had to be the size of a nickel!!!! I have never seen a tick that big before! We manage to get it detached from the skin but because it was so big we couldn't get our fingers in there to pull it out! So we had to take the hose and spray his ear enough to get him to shake his head around to get it to out. It took like 10 minutes of fighting with him and finally letting him be before he finally shook his head and it came out! This was without a doubt my strangest experience with ticks yet and I wish I had gotten a pic of this tick I really do lol! Hopefully the fly mask with ears that I'm going to get him will help keep ticks out of his ears.
