Uh-oh.....tall grass..............THAT'S where mosquitoes and other bugs hang out during non-fly time. I think if you'd have BF cut it, especially around and in paddock and near the horses you might have less of an itching problem.
At first you'll have tons of homeless bugs swarming but they will go away and maybe find other targets

Yes absolutely - unfortunately my boy doesn't do the whole outdoors thing. The people we rent from have a company to mow the lawn but have been told not to touch the horse area (by the owners not me). I asked if i could pay them extra to clean up those areas, they say at the point it's at they'd have to bring in a group of people with weed whackers and would have to ask their boss as it would be tough on their tools. So i'm whacking away at it myself a little at a time. Starting with the parimeter of her paddock

Congratulations on such a huge turning point!!! I'll bet you were wearing the same "perma smile" I had when I got Star on the lead again after her episode.... She looks amazingly like the Morgan I've had for 6 wks now, btw! I'll have to round up some of the other photos I have of her. What is Tanks registered name, if you don't mind my asking? (New to the Morgan World, and finding her pedigree interesting) Again, so happy for you and Tank! :)

North thanks!! Absolutely perma smile! I'm so freaking thrilled for her, especially seeing how happy she was getting excited over the open space. Now i gotta teach her to ride better so we can gallop across it!! xD
I want pics of your morgan! I love morgans! Tank is actually a Canadian horse, the ancestor breed of a morgan, basically the draft version of a morgan. I think she's registered my vet had her checked and it said there was a micro chip, but the reader couldn't recognize it- i think it may be canadian. She was bought through the auctions bounced all around with pmu foals which is what she was assumed to be. Until she settled with the trainer who gave her to me, who called her a perch morgan cross. There's actually a few canadian breeders near me i'm going to visit to see if they may know anything about her but i think they're roo careful to let one of theirs go to auction.
